SBHS Drama Presents A Christmas Carol
Posted by Corey Burdick on 12/11/2020 1:40:00 PM
SBHS Drama may look a little different this year, but thanks to the hard work of 25 talented cast and crew members under the direction of Drama Director, Gail Kilkelly, Music Director Mark Violette, and Sound Engineer Ken Hypes, a musical version of the classic, A Christmas Carol is going live! (virtually).
The SBHS Fall Drama production is a Zoom-based recorded musical adaptation of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. In this production you’ll hear the familiar story of Scrooge and his ghostly visitors who relive the miser’s less-than charitable life, but ends with an opportunity for redemption. Sprinkled throughout the story are solos, duets and musical numbers performed by SBHS Drama students.
According to Kilkelly, "Our creative process began with one in-person meeting in September under one of the SBHS outdoor tents. Due to COVID restrictions, everything that followed, from auditions to rehearsals to post-production work, has been done remotely, and mostly on Zoom. It has been a process, and our first experience trying this new digital creative world."
This recorded production will be available for on-demand streaming via a link on the SBHS Website beginning Friday, Dec. 11th at 7:00 pm and will be available until January 2nd, 2021. The cast stars SBHS Junior Matthew Vigneau as Scrooge and the story is narrated in radio-play style by SBHS Junior Noah Goodman. Also featured is FHTMS student Orion Cooper performing in the role of Tiny Tim.
The production is free to the public, but if you are so inclined, donations to support this production can be sent to SBHS Drama through the high school address. Enjoy safely celebrating the season while supporting students! Thanks to all involved!
