A Seussified Christmas Carol
By Katie Lehan
On Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7, Seton and Elder’s drama students will be presenting A Seussified Christmas Carol, a play which follows the classic Charles Dickens novel “A Christmas Carol,” but adds a twist to it. People are invited to attend the performance immediately following the Holiday on the Hill tree lighting on Friday, where friends and family are welcome to be part of a Price Hill Christmas tradition. In A Seussified Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge is still as unfriendly and greedy as he is in the original story. The three ghosts that come to visit Scrooge are very similar as well. What makes this version of the story different is everything is said in rhyme. Also, since it is a family friendly version, some of the familiar darker and somewhat frightening scenes have been switched around so they come off as more light-hearted events. Senior, Catherine Tuttle, who will be playing the part of the ghost of Christmases Past said, ¨I think this is a great show to be a part of! There is a lot of energy involved in this play and we hope to make the audience experience that fun, positive energy and get them in the Christmas spirit!”
The play, directed by Tara Tuttle, is at 7 pm on Friday and at 1 pm on Saturday in Seton’s auditorium. Tickets are $5 at the door. The show is a very fun and interesting spin on “A Christmas Carol” and anyone who loves the original version and who loves Dr. Seuss, will enjoy this performance.
