FSU’s Department of Theatre and Dance to Present Holiday Production of “Scrooge in Rouge”
For its holiday production this year, the Department of Theatre and Dance at Frostburg State University will present “Scrooge in Rouge,” a quick-change, cross-dressing version of the Charles Dickens’ classic, “A Christmas Carol,” Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 5 to 7, at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 2 p.m. Directed by FSU’s Darrell Rushton, performances will take place at the Lyric Theatre, 20 E. Main St. in Frostburg. Food and drink will be available through Chartwell’s.
The play begins as the Royal Music Hall Variety Players are ready to put on their production, but there’s just one little problem: only three of the cast members escaped the food poisoning of last night’s party. Nevertheless, this brave trio will soldier on, missing cues, reinventing costumes and trying to decide who will play Tiny Tim. The result is a hilarious night of bad puns, bawdy malapropisms, naughty double entendres and witty songs.
This campy confection by Ricky Graham (book and lyrics) and composer Jefferson Turner has been described as a cross between Monty Python and Benny Hill that hearkens back to the heyday of the English music hall. So come for an evening of holiday drinks, food and lots of laughs! (Note: This play is not suitable for young children.)
Individual tickets are $15 for general admission and $7 for students.
