Hickory – Just in time for Christmas, the Hickory Community Theatre presents a new take on a familiar classic with Tiny Tim’s Christmas Carol. The humorous and touching new play will have two Saturday performances, with seats available for $10.

All the familiar characters are here in this original play reimagined from Tiny Tim’s point of view. You’ll witness how the miser, Scrooge, has his life transformed by visitations from the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, and how he is influenced by one sickly child’s wonder about the magic of Christmas.

Playwright and director Murray Phillips has assembled an outstanding cast for this production. John Bates is Scrooge, Luke Paruch is Tiny Tim and Jason Koon is Bob Cratchit. The Cratchit family are played by Amanda Waters as Mrs. Cratchit, Heather Osterer as Martha, Rian Rogers as Belinda, Ben Ellwanger as Peter, Lydia Walters as Eliza, Isa Alfaro as Emma, Lucas Page as Paul and Harper Pyatte as Mary. The ensemble includes Sophie Heller-Lee, Abby Koon, Paul David Kurts, Leah Harper, Alicia Littlejohn, Miriam McKee, Quinn Mullis, Kyle Phillips, Angelina Prendergast and Chad Schuermeyer.

Performances of Tiny Tim’s Christmas Carol are Saturdays, December 8th and 15th at 2:30pm. Tickets are $10 each and may be purchased online at www.hickorytheatre.org or by calling the box office at 828-328-2283.
