Abilene Community Theatre is pleased to announce open auditions for JACOB MARLEY’S CHRISTMAS
CAROL by Tom Mula, and directed by Mike Stephens, to be held on Monday, October 5th thru
Wednesday, October 7th, from 7 to 9PM, via Zoom Meetings, by appointment. Performance dates are
December 13th thru 15th and December 20th thru 22nd. JACOB MARLEY’S CHRISTMAS CAROL, as well as all
the productions in ACT’s 2020-2021 season, is sponsored by the Excelsior Foundation.
“Marley was dead to begin with. That must be clearly understood or nothing wonderful can come of this story.” But there are always two sides to every story. In Tom Mula’s JACOB MARLEY’S CHRISTMAS CAROL, we finally get to hear the tale of Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL told from Marley’s perspective. Desperate and locked in a torment of his own creation, Marley gets one chance for redemption: he must redeem his former partner, Ebenezer Scrooge. This begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge’s heart is certainly opened, but not before Marley – in his irreverent, funny and deeply moving story – discovers his own. JACOB MARLEY’S CHRISTMAS CAROL is being produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. Each actor will perform multiple characters; gender of actors is non-specific.
