‘Inspecting Carol’ brings holiday hilarity

The Thanksgiving turkey is now a happy memory, and it’s time to turn our thoughts to the next holiday. Piedmont Players Theatre is here to get you in a festive mood with the holiday comedy “Inspecting Carol,” by Daniel Sullivan and the Seattle Repertory Co.
The show opens next Thursday, Dec. 6 at the Meroney Theatre in downtown Salisbury.
In this “Noises Off” meets “A Chritmas Carol” comedy, a man who asks to audition at a small theatre is mistaken for an informer for the National Endowment for the Arts. Everyone caters to the bewildered wannabe actor and he is given a role in their production of “A Christmas Carol.” Everything goes wrong and hilarity is piled upon hilarity.
Reid Leonard directs; stage manager is Jeff Miller and costume design is by Jim Beaudoin.
The cast includes Ryan Williams, Rodney Lippard, Andrew Prater, Nathan Prater, Lori Van Wallendael, Marnie Stoker, Bob Hackett, Carole Davis, Philip Shore, Scott Teeter and Bryant Lewis.
Performances are at 7 p.m. Dec. 6-8 & 12-15, with a Sunday matinee at 2:30 Dec. 9.
Call 704-633-5471 for ticket information.
