Tonight changes everything.
Ebenezer Scrooge's last chance is one night and three spirits. It's a life-changing ride through past, present and future as he learns what it means to be human. Nineteen actors bring Dickens' classic Holiday tale to life in a dazzling new production brimming with bold acting, daring design and spine tingling special effects. Our new Holiday tradition for the Triad is a ghostly tale of Yule-tide cheer, gracious redemption and heart-warming hope for the whole family.
One of the most highly acclaimed theaters in the state is getting in the holiday spirit with two very different shows.
For the last 10 years, Triad Stage has brought the community together, dazzling audiences with new and unique Christmas performances. This year, it is getting theatergoers into the holiday spirit with a new adaptation on the old holiday classic "A Christmas Carol."
The massive production features a diverse cast of 19 actors who play 55 roles, some are from the Piedmont and others are acclaimed actors from New York.
Perhaps no performance is more closely associated with the season than this. Thus, welcoming another voice to the chorus almost seems redundant.
Unless it's a production of Triad Stage, newly christened as one of the top ten new theatres in the country. Add, on top of that, award-winning director Preston Lane's confession that this is his all-time favorite story – in his words, "a central myth in the Western world."
As malls become crowded, and stores cram their aisles with Christmas lights, tinsel and holiday décor, it’s hard to forget that the holidays are upon us. And just as mistletoe and “Jingle Bells” are icons of the season, so are “Bah-humbug” Mr. Scrooge and the loveable Tiny Tim of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
This Friday see A Christmas Carol brought not just to life, but to Dickens’ original grim, yet joyful vision in an adaptation by Triad Stage artistic director Preston Lane.
Triad Stage Director Preston Lane and actor Gordon Joseph Weiss share their take on A Christmas Caroland its lead character Ebenezer Scrooge.
Triad Stage is putting on a new adaptation of Charles Dickens', "A Christmas Carol," adapted by artistic director, Preston Lane.
Lane lists, "A Christmas Carol," as his favorite story of all time and notes that prior to the publication of the story in December of 1943, Christmas traditions were dying out in most of England.
