Audition for STA's Virtual production of...
What would happen if Charles Dickens and Dr. Seuss collaborated on a play? A Seussified Christmas Carol, of course! A whimsical reinvention of Dickens’ most beloved Christmas story in wacky rhymed couplets. With zoot fruited juices and binka bird geese, from Bed-Headed Fred to Timmy Loo Hoo, this tale of glorious holiday cheer is like something Dr. Seuss might have come up with — if he ever had his way with the story.
Written by Peter Bloedel
Directed by Myles Vencill
Produced by Scripps Theatre Arts
