BEST BET

November 29, 2001|By J. Wynn Rousuck

It's that Christmas Carol time of year again, and Pumpkin Theatre is putting its own spin on the Dickens classic with a musical version adapted by producer-director Todd Pearthree and local playwright David Brown.

The most lavish production in Pumpkin's 34-year history, A Christmas Carol opens Saturday, under Pearthree's direction. Robert Riggs stars as stingy Ebenezer Scrooge. Tom Burns is his overworked clerk, Bob Cratchit; Joey Hellman, Liz Boyer Hunnicutt and Dennis Wood play the three ghosts. The score is primarily by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill.

Pumpkin Theatre performs at the Hannah More Arts Center at St. Timothy's School for Girls, 8400 Greenspring Ave., Stevenson. Show times are 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, and 7: 30 p.m. Dec. 8 and 15, through Dec. 16. (No 1 p.m. performance Dec. 15.) Tickets are $10. Call 410-828-1814.
