For holiday season, a different tradition

Some theaters have a tradition of mounting A Christmas Carol. AXIS Theatre, however, has somewhat of a holiday tradition of its own. For the third time in seven years, it is presenting Inspecting Carol, Daniel Sullivan's spoof on the Dickens classic.

The Murphy's Law plot focuses on a broke theater company whose only hope for survival is the renewal of its National Endowment for the Arts grant. An NEA inspector is coming to assess the company's annual Christmas Carol, which is unraveling faster than you can say "Tiny Tim." Under Brian Klaas' direction, the production, which opens tonight, features three members of AXIS' original 1994 cast: Jennifer Brown, Jack Manion and Mary Alice Feather.

Show times at AXIS, 3600 Clipper Mill Road, are 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays (except Nov. 18). The show runs through Dec. 23. Tickets are $12-$15. Call 410-243-5237.
