The Tower Theatre is getting a jump start on their goal for more community outreach. Cast members of the upcoming B.E.A.T. production of "A Christmas Carol" are visiting local schools to perform scenes from the play. "We try to keep it interactive. So we talk about Charles Dickens himself. We talk about the premise of the play. But we also talk about what London was really was like in 1843, which was when the play was set, from Mrs. Cratchit's perspective. The poverty and what times would have been like." Rebecca Singer, who plays Mrs. Cratchit in the play, says some of the students are chosen to play parts in the scene and many are inspired to find out more about the theatre. A Christmas Carol will be at the Tower Theatre Friday through Monday. You can get more information at the Tower Theatre website.
