The Delvena Theatre Company Presents: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
AMHERST– As part of the Library’s adult programming, The Delvena Theatre Company will present a dramatic reading of the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol, at the Amherst Town Library on Sunday, December 3, at 4:00 p.m. in the Main Reading Room. Watch in fascination as Marley comes back from the dead to help Scrooge amend his miserly ways here on earth and transform himself into a pleasant, giving old gentleman. With the help of three ghosts – the Ghost of Christmas Past, Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future – the audience will be mesmerized as old Scrooge takes a long look at his life and reevaluates its path. Classic Holiday music will put the finishing touch on this wonderful message of hope and love – so fitting for the Holiday season!
A Christmas Carol will be performed, complete with period costumes, by Lynne Moulton, Joseph Zamparelli, and Fran Baron. The Delvena Theatre Company was founded in 1992 and has performed at various venues, most often at the Boston Center for the Arts. The Company was nominated for five Independent Reviewers of New England awards. Its production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf was on Theatre Mirror’s Best List for acting, directing, and production. Presentations of Anna Weiss and Beyond Therapy were included on Theatre Mirror’s best play list and Blue Heart was placed on Aisle Say’s best list.
