A large cast of enthusiastic actors sing and dance their way through Charles Dickens’ classic tale, musically directed by Joseph L. Cottone and costumed by guest designer Gail Lehtinen. According to director Karen McKenney, “There are 39 people of all ages in the cast, so it’s been a challenging job, but we’re sure the results are going to please the audience.”
