Christmas Double Feature

Release Date: 2008-12-17

The Company Theatre’s Damian Gillen brings his one-man version of A Christmas Carol to San Anto as part of a 10-city statewide tour. Bah Humbug! is a unique adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic about hope and compassion — Gillen plays all the roles that chronicle the story of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and his journey to redemption. The play is supported by numerous special effects, rapid costume changes, and traditional Celtic Christmas tunes. As a special treat for the theater crowd, the Company Theater offers a second production on the same night: an old-time radio play of It’s a Wonderful Life called Merry Christmas, George Bailey. The live version is based on a Lux Soap Radio script originally performed in 1947, including sound effects, period costumes, and commercials. $10/12, 7pm Merry Christmas, George Bailey, 8pm Bah Humbug, Saturday, Arneson River Theatre, 418 Villita St., thecompanytheatre.org.
