Sunset Rotary To Host The Opening of A Christmas Carol at Theatre 29.
Yucca Valley Sunset Rotary will be hosting the opening night of the Dickens classic "A Christmas Carol"--The musical. on Friday November 19th. at Theatre 29 in Twenty-nine Palms. Sunset Rotary is rolling out the red carpet. Food, beverages, a silent auction, and more will be happening prior to the performance that start at 7PM. Theatre 29 was a beneficiary at the 25th Orchid Festival held last month.
Preformed for the first time as a musical in the Morongo Basin and in San Bernardino County, “A Christmas Carol – The Musical”. “Each of Dickens’ iconic characters is brought to life with music, dancing and spectacle,” said Director Lisa Goldberg, helming her first main stage feature. “It’s not a typical stage production or reading by any means.”
This version of the holiday favorite tale comes to Theatre 29 from the Broadway powerhouse team of Alan Menken and Lynn Ahrens. “A Christmas Carol – The Musical” opened on Broadway in 1994 and ran for nine years.
The cast consists of 27 musical theatre veterans from past Theatre 29 productions, as well as some new performers from the Morongo Basin Communities, including some talented local children playing some of the most cherished roles.
Theater 29 wants to ensure the safety of patrons and the cast, proof of Covid vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours is required to attend and all patrons will be required to wear a mask.
Tickets are available through Rotarians Patti Brown, the Loan Lady, or President Elect Tami Montgomery of Green Real Estate
