We just opened A Christmas Carol at ACT Theatre this weekend. This is my third year doing the show and I couldn’t be happier. It is such a heartfelt story that people come to see every year and share with their families. It’s a holiday tradition for so many and has become one for my family as well.
In previous years I have played the Ghost of Christmas Past, but this year I am playing Belle, Scrooge’s jilted fiance. You wouldn’t think that this would be a hard show to act, but the breakup scene is one of the hardest scenes I’ve done in a while. There are so many turns and transitions in such a short amount of time on top of some big emotions. But I do get to dance in the Fezziwig scene so that makes up for it!
Here is Belle- I love being a blonde again!
Then there is Fred’s wife. She’s a lot of fun- she and Fred have such a great marriage and love entertaining their friends. It’s almost like I get to live out the marriage Belle and Scrooge would have had if he hadn’t turned to the dark side…
I adore wearing these costumes and wigs! This show feels like the show I always wanted to do when I was a kid. Dressing up will never get old!
Christmas Carol is a wonderful show for all ages and is a great way to feel the holiday cheer. Get your tickets now because we will sell out! And if you would like to stay up to date on my instagram photos, follow me on Twitter or like my Facebook page!
I would love to know, what are some of your favorite holiday traditions?
