Mrs. Cratchit at Creekside

Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge runs at Lake Country’s Creekside Theatre tonight through Friday at 7:30 p.m.

  • Dec. 7, 2011 12:00 p.m.

Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge continues at Lake Country’s Creekside Theatre Wednesday, Dec. 7, through Friday, Dec. 9, at 7:30 p.m.

Written by Toni Award winner Christopher Durang, it’s a musical parody centered around Mrs. Bob Cratchit who is an angry, stressed-out modern-day American who wants out of her harsh London 1840’s life. In this modern adaptation of Charles Dicken’s classic A Christmas Carol, young Scrooge’s exclamations of “Bah, humbug!” are an undiagnosed seasonal version of Tourette’s Syndrome and The Ghost of Christmas Past is played by a sassy African-American woman with enough attitude to portray all three spirits—which she does.

Her magic to show Scrooge his past, present and future keeps malfunctioning and they consistently find themselves transported to the wrong time and place.

To make matters worse, Scrooge and Mrs. Cratchit seem to be kindred souls falling in love. Tickets are $10 adults, $7.50 students and $5 for children under 10: 250-766-9309 or www.creeksidetheatre.com.
