Roswater theatre does it again! The show A Christmas Carol is one of the most innovative exceptional productions of the Holiday season. Lisa Sherouse Riley proves that British folk make the best shows. From beginning to end the show is a smorgasborg of scenes created witht upmost sense of delicacy and artistic expression. Bill Pacer's Scrooge is much better than previous years. He has learned the tics and the character and produces the icon that we want. The Ghosts especially Paul Simmons truly manifest the Dickens into the play. Its just not a Christmas Carol at the Cumming Playhouse...its DICKENS Christmas Carol and the Cumming Playhouse and the Ghosts, Marley, past, present, future all do superb jobs of transporting us to the time perioud. Other supporting characters do magnificent jobs of being the catalysts to Scrooge's anger and evwentual redemption. G. Scott Riley sets are beautiful and exquiste. I do have one thing to say...a criticism if you will.....

Brian Baumann....

why is he in this show!!
Everything is going wonderful until that familiar face once agains does not grace us with his presence. The show is at 100 degrees before he comes in then when he enters slows down to 10 mph. His counterpart I must say though. The lovely Evelyn Cummuo is a talented actress and I was happy to see her thoughout the show. But Baumann thinks this is the Elephant Man play or some Italian comedy/mafia drama the way he prances on the stage. Somebody tell Uta Hagen to give him some lessons please.

Other than that...wonderful show...wonderful cast. I have seen the show 3 times now and they get better and better. Bob Cratchit is amazing...tiny Tim...perfect...Fred...magmamonius.....the demons....enchanting...Cratchit children....delightful....Marley..Oscar-nominated.....the music.....gripping

yey feziwigs, fred and cratchets!
