St. John’s Conservatory Theater (JCT) is proud to announce that its newest original musical comedy A Kreepy Christmas Carol opens December 6, 2014 at St. John’s Parish House in Ogdensburg, NY.
Local talent from Ogdensburg, Heuvelton, Canton, and Gouverneur, including three Crane graduates, make up the cast with (in order of appearance) Sloane Ryan as Nipper, Makayla Lovely as Abby, Hailey Weber as Letty, Jillian LeBel as Gusie, Elizabeth Bascom as Trudy, Cole Siebels as Cager, Anton Skamperle as Ollie, Dee Bellinger as Zinger and Tiny Tina, Christopher Dwyer as Bob Cratchit, R O’Donnell as Scrooge, Brad Mintener as Jacob Marley, Rebecca Bascom as the Ghost of Been There Done That, Ryan Woodard as Fezziwig, Angela Conzone Dwyer as the Ghost of Christmas Presents, with Madalyn Bascom as our chimney sweep stagehand, and a surprise guest each night as the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come.
A reimagined Scrooge finds himself haunted by four ghosts, while facing new and familiar characters, in a rollicking tale presented in JCT’s signature commedia dell’arte/chamber theater style. A Kreepy Christmas Carol promises to be a real holiday treat for the entire family!
This tuneful comedic interpretation of the Dickens holiday classic is directed by R O’Donnell, with original book, music, and lyrics by award-winning playwright/composer Brazillia R. Kreep (author of JCT’s last hit Alice Isn’t All There), musical direction and vocal arrangements by Angela Conzone Dwyer, orchestration and accompaniment by Ryan C. McNally, set and prop designs by Stephen Chambers, and costumes and makeup by Ann Losurdo and Maggie Gebo.
