Casting has been announced for the upcoming Off-Broadway production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol — featuring an adaptation by 39 Steps' Patrick Barlow — which will play a limited engagement beginning in November.
Directed by Joe Calarco, previews will begin Nov. 16 at the Theatre at St. Clement's with an official opening Nov. 25. Terri and Timothy Childs and Rodger Hess produce.
The cast will feature Peter Bradbury as Scrooge with Mark Light-Orr, Jessie Shelton, Franca Vercelloni and Mark Price playing all of the other roles.
"Five gifted actors bring to life all of our favorite characters, from Scrooge and Tiny Tim to Bob Cratchit and Mrs. Fezziwig," according to press notes. "Using nothing more than some simple props, fresh physicality and the power of imagination, this timeless story of redemption shows how Ebenezer Scrooge transforms from a stingy miser to a man who generously celebrates the spirit of the season all year long."
The production will have set design by Brian Prather, lighting design by Chris Lee, costume design by Anne Kennedy and sound design by Victoria Delorio.
Theatre at St. Clement's is located at 423 W. 46th Street. Tickets, priced at $75, are available at www.Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
