PPT youth theater presents ‘A Seussified Christmas Carol’

A Seussified Christmas at the Norvell

by Josh Wainright

 

Tired of the same old holiday stuff?

The same thing year after year ain’t enough?

Well here is something you might want to try…

a holiday classic that we Seussify!

Now, suppose Dr. Seuss got a hold of the 170 year old Charles Dickens classic; yes, that Dr. Seuss.  The Dr. Seuss that brought you The Grinch, The Cat In The Hat, Thing 1 and Thing 2, and The Lorax. A Christmas Carol in rhymed couplets. From zoot fruited juices to binka bird geese, to Bed-Headed Fred (Scrooge’s Nephew), this delightful reinvention of A Christmas Carol will bring a new level of joy to the Christmas season. Note:  Zoot fruits grow on the antlers of zoot fruited mooses.

There is Scrooge, of course, but in the Seussified telling, Scrooge was once a rock-and-roller and likes to be known as “The Scrooge.” Tiny Tim becomes “Little Timmy Loo Hoo.” The Ghosts of Christmas are back, but not the way you’ve seen them before. The characters are fun, and they come and go quickly in this fast-paced tale of glorious holiday cheer that is similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with — if he ever had his way with the story!  Mean Old Ebeneezer…Jacob Marley….a visit from three ghosts…and a change of attitude leading to redemption.

So come to the Norvell and for a nominal fee,

See a new take on a classic story!

A Seussified Christmas Carol plays at the Norvell Theater, 135 E. Fisher St. Dec. 12 and 19 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec 13 and 20 at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Adults $10, seniors/students $8.  The Norvell box office opens for seat namers and season ticket holders tomorrow.  Tickets go on sale to the public Monday.
