Scrooge Ready to Roll This Weekend

Yes, with all the crazy winter weather we’ve had lately, what could be more appropriate than Lockport’s traditional holiday musical? That’s right, Scrooge will be taking the stage at the Historic Lockport Palace Theatre this weekend, December 2-4. If you haven’t seen it in any of the last thirteen years, maybe the fourteenth time's the charm.

Scrooge is a Lockport tradition. This will be our fourth time seeing it, and at least one of our daughters has been in it for the last three. Three of the Bacon Bits are in the show this year. I’ve sat through some of the rehearsals and this year is bound to bring out the best in all the actors and actresses. If you’ve seen the show before, be prepared to see some familiar faces in new roles.

For those of you who don’t know the story, Scrooge is a light-hearted adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol written by Corning, NY, native David Smith. Under direction of Palace Executive Director, Christopher Parada; choreographer, Emily Prucha; vocal director, Lindsay Andrews; and music director, Jeanette Sheliga, the cast will be ready to ring in the holiday season.

The performances will be at 7:30pm on Friday and Saturday, December 2nd and 3rd. There will also be a matinee performance on Sunday at 3pm. Tickets can be purchased through the website here: lockportpalace,or at the Box Office at the theater. Box Office hours are 10am-2pm Monday through Friday.

If you make it to Saturday’s show, I will be there cheering on my daughters and all the fabulous actors and actresses who took the time to entertain us. Stop by and say hello before the show, or during intermission. I’ll be in Row B.
