This Weekend in Wellsville: “A Christmas Carol,” December 2 & 3 performances


The Charles Dickens holiday classic directed by Matt Warren

Just in Time: A Christmas Carol

Everyone loves a classic story and there is none as timeless as Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Wellsville Secondary School Theatre is proud to present this beloved tale in the Wellsville High School Auditorium this weekend.

Nineteen high school students have been working hard since September 20th to breathe life into this show. Audiences will enjoy watching the miserly Scrooge (played by Ashden Hyslip, Natilee Baker & Noah Joslyn) as he is visited by 4 ghosts—his former partner Jacob Marley (Tristen Amidon), and the Ghosts of Christmas Past

(Maddison Baker), Present (Mars Davis), and Yet to Be (August Sparatta). These spirits remind him of his life as a boy at school, and as a young man in love with the beauti- ful Belle. They force him to see the impact of his life choices on the family of his assis- tant, Bob Cratchit, and his own family as well. All of this and more works on Ebenezers heart and transforms him—much to the surprise of all—into a man worth knowing.

Director Matt Warren has this to say about the show: “A Christmas Carol is a wonder- ful performance that the whole family will enjoy. The talented students and staff at Wellsville have worked incredibly hard to bring this classic Dickens tale to life, and this production is a perfect way to kick off the holiday season.His reflections are second- ed by Keenen OConnor, who plays Bob Cratchit: In this show, you will experience the changes that Scrooge went through firsthand, from humbug to happy! It is exciting to be a part of the story.

Find your Christmas spirit by coming to see our performances on Friday, Dec 2nd and Saturday, Dec 3rd at 7:30pm in the Wellsville High School Auditorium. Tickets can be purchased at the door. They are $5 for students & senior citizens and $10 for general admission. It promises to be a terrific production. Those who come to see this show are sure to feel blessed—every one.
