COPAKE, NY —The Two Of Us Productions, the award winning theater company based in Columbia County NY, is pleased to present a virtual-live staged reading of the wonderful Christmas Classic A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. This performance, the fifth & final production of their 2022 Virtual Live-Staged Reading Series, is being presented on Saturday evening December 10th, 2022 at 7:00pm.   

In A Christmas Carol we meet the ill-tempered miser Ebeneezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve 1850.  The melancholy Scrooge finds himself alone at home when he sees before him the ghost of Jacob Marley, his long-time friend &deceased business partner. Marley warns Scrooge that in death he will be punished for all the suffering he has caused others & he has only one chance to escape his fate.

That night while Scrooge sleeps he is visited by three ghosts! They are the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. The Ghost of Christmas Past takes Scrooge on a journey through Christmases from his own past, where Scrooge sees himself as an unhappy child and a young man more in love with money than his fiancé. The Ghost of Christmas Present shows Scrooge the family life of his long-suffering clerk Bob Cratchit.  There Scrooge sees Tiny Tim, who is very ill but full of brave spirit. The ghost then takes Scrooge to see his the Christmas celebration of his nephew Fred – to which he had been invited but that he gruffly declined to attend.  Finally, the Ghost of Christmas Future terrifies Scrooge by showing him visions of his own death.

These journeys through time teach Scrooge the error of his ways. When he wakes up on Christmas Day he is full of excitement & buys the biggest turkey in the shop for the Cratchit family before spending the day with his nephew, full of the joys of Christmas.
