THE FARNDALE AVENUE HOUSING ESTATE TOWNSWOMEN'S GUILD DRAMATIC SOCIETY'S PRODUCTION OF A CHRISTMAS CAROL - WRITTEN BY: DAVID MCGILLIVRAY AND WALTER ZERLIN, JR. / LOOSELY BASED ON CHARLES DICKENS' A CHRISTMAS CAROL. This production will be directed by Douglas Stauter. Performances will be December 2-5 & 10-12, 2021.


The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's production of A Christmas Carol - In a festive mood, the ladies of the Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society mount another assault on the classics with their stage version of A Christmas Carol. They enthusiastically portray a dizzy array of characters from the Dickensian favorite (and a few which aren't), engineer some novel audience participation while bravely contending with an intrusive PA system and a real Farndale first - rap their vocal cords and feet around two original, show-stopping songs.

Farndale ladies are renowned across the globe for their famously incompetent performances. Their bumbling charm is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit with the hilarious Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of A Christmas Carol. This heartwarming and engagingly goofy comedy portrays the attempts of four ladies of the society and one slightly reluctant man to get through a production of Dickens' A Christmas Carol that is disaster-prone in the lovable way of small theater productions. From broken-down transportation to collapsing scenery, line mix-ups to infighting, the ladies soldier through the mishaps like the troopers they are, having a jolly good time along the way and bringing the audience right along with them.
