This December I’ll be performing in the 31st Annual Performance of A Christmas Carol at the Hale Centre Theatre in West Valley City, UT.

Merry Christmas! Yes I know it’s early for that. but for this post that has to be said.

As some of you may know, this will be my 6th year performing as Jacob Marley’s Ghost and The Undertaker’s Man.  This year I’ll be in the Tuesday Thursday Saturday evening cast, and the Scrooge I’ll be delivering the message to is yet again the great Stephen Kerr in his third year as the miserly skin-flint. I’ll post the schedule down below of all the show’s I’ll be in.

For now I want to say how excited I am to have this be part of my life and is fast becoming a family tradition for me. I have seen some of the same faces for the past 6 years come to see the show as well, and I’m so thrilled that it’s becoming a tradition of theirs too. This is one of the oldest ghost stories around and it packs quite a powerful message, especially at this time of year.

It has been worth going through 20 minutes of make up twice a day to be the 1st ghost to that delivers an important message to Ebenezer Scrooge, because it sets the tone for the audience, and really starts to get them thinking about their own lives and what they might be doing with it. Plus I get to put a little scare into people. lolMarly Promo Shot

Please contact the theatre at 801-984-9000 or go to the website and easily book your tickets there at www.hct.org. So as for the schedule…

I’ll be performing at 5PM and 8PM every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday evenings starting on the 5th of December.  ***NOTICE: DO NOT GET TICKETS FOR THURSDAY DEC 10TH! I AM BOOKED FOR ANOTHER PERFORMANCE ELSEWHERE THAT EVENING!***  I’ll also be performing in the  2PM and 5PM matinees on December 18th, as well as the MWF cast @ 5 & 8PM on December 21st.  Saving the best for last…I will also be in the 11AM and 2PM performance on December 23rd & 24th, yes Christmas Eve!!!  Get tickets early, this show sells out early every year. Why, some of you may ask? Because in the United States there are 5 top things to see at Christmas time (according to a MSNBC poll about 9 years ago) and are family traditions:

Rockefeller Tree

1) The Christmas Tree in Rockerfeller Center  

2) The Radio City Music Hall Christmas Extravaganza

3) Chicago Theatre’s The Nutcracker Chicago Nutcracker

4) A Christmas Carol at Hale Centre Theatre!!!

5) The Boston Pops Holiday concert

That’s for real. Come see it if you haven’t had a chance.
