The famously classic holiday tale by Charles Dickens about the infamous Scrooge (Ebenezer, not McDuck), the workaholic evil-doer turned turkey-gifting do-gooder. But Scrooge cannot see the error of his cold, un-Christmasy ways until he gets a good ghostly intervention. Enter moi!
In the immortal words of Disney’s Haunted Mansion: I am your ghost. Your Ghost Host!
In this musicalized version of A Christmas Carol, I am thrilled to be playing The Ghost of Christmas Past! This bookends nicely with my stint as The Wicked Witch in Oz. Yes, the Witch was wild, scary and wicked, and the Ghost is wild, scary and good, but you see the theme here, right?
Or is that just me?
This is my first time on stage at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, and I am excited to be in a new theatre and working with director Nina Felice (who, not incidentally, also wrote this adaptation!) In a case of six degrees of theatrical separation, I worked with Nina Felice’s daughter in Les Miserables last Spring when she played young Cosette.
Located in Ft. Lauderdale’s Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment district, A Christmas Carol will play matinee and evening shows for one week only.

Now back to the role, which is the one I was hoping for when I auditioned for two different parts in the show. My Ghost is particularly enjoyable to play in that she is…. unconventional. To reveal more could spoil the surprise, but suffice it to say she does not sound/speak/behave the way you might expect a dignified or terrifying ghost to sound/speak/behave….
