Charles Dickens’ beloved classic, “A Christmas Carol,” comes to vibrant life in Master Chorus Eastside’s enchanting synthesis of Christmas carols and readers theater, A “Choral” Christmas Carol, performed at 3 p.m. Sundays, Dec. 10 and 17 at Pine Lake Covenant Church, 1715 228th Ave SE, Sammamish.
Holiday carols intertwine with dramatic readings from this timeless story. Actor David Ketter stars as the narrator, and Village Theater veteran John Deveney (Damn Yankees, The Odd Couple, Meet Me in St. Louis) appears as Scrooge, with smaller roles, such as the Cratchit family, played by Master Chorus Eastside members.
“It’s amazing how well the story and the carols fit together. It’s as if they were made for one another,” says artistic director and conductor Dr. Linda Gingrich. “And we feel especially fortunate to have David Ketter and John Deveney in the starring roles. They bring a sparkle to this production that has inspired us all. ”
