HURLEYVILLE — Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop tops its 2023 Season with a family friendly production of “A Christmas Carol: A Live Radio Play” along with our SCDW Youth Theater presentations of “On the Eighth Day of Hanukkah” AND “Santa’s Little Reindeer RAP” which runs during the holiday season from December 8-10.
From our Youth Theater - We begin the show with two short one-acts, directed by Dawn Perneszi. First – “Santa’s Little Reindeer Rap” by Val Neubecker - the lovable holiday tale that is heartwarming and joyful as we see that Santa’s not feeling so well, but the Elves and Reindeer use music to help him feel better - bringing the spirit of Christmas to life; followed by “On the 8th Night of Hanukkah”, by Jake Lewis. The story of Hanukkah is brought to ‘light’ with an adorable story of our menorah candles getting ready to ‘shine their brightest’ for the 8th nights, but the Shamas (the head candle) is not quite up to the holiday dress standard. Both shows are shared by the cast of our Youth Theater - Jill Baumenberg, Kaleb Cross, Maria Nardi, Ashley Pelayes, Tyler Pelayes, Makenzie Rainey, Nico Retana, Annabelle Segal and Elise Vargas.
After a brief intermission of hot beverages and desserts, we conclude the performance with an old classic with a new, fresh, and inventive look at “A Christmas Carol: A Live Radio Play.” The timeless classic (and a holiday television tradition) transforms live theater to staging the story as if it was a live radio broadcast in front of a live studio audience! Our ‘1940s’ actors perform the voices of dozens of characters while creating LIVE foley sound effects. An adaptation by Joe Landry and music by Kevin Connor - we are transported back to the heyday of 1940 Radio bringing the Charles Dickens classic to life with the iconic characters of Scrooge, Cratchits’, and Christmas Ghosts. Come see our cast of characters, performed by Jean Eifert, Peter Nastasi, Alberto Santiago, Heather Strauss, Grace Summa and Harold Tighe including our Youth theatre members.
