Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts presents: Scrooge in Rouge

Details

Local favorites Ricky Graham, Varla Jean Merman, Yvette Hargis and Jefferson Turner wrote a Christmas musical y’all! It’s called Scrooge in Rouge….and theater companies all over the country are producing it! We get to have the creators themselves reprise their roles for the Rivertown audiences! Get in the holiday spirit with this quick-change, cross-dressing musical version “somewhat loosely based on the idea of ‘A Christmas Carol’. The “Royal Music Hall Variety Players” have a widespread case of food poisoning. This leaves only three surviving members to soldier on through a performance of A Christmas Carol originally intended for a cast of twenty. The undaunted trio gamely face missed cues, ill-fitting costumes, and re-casting the show with an audience member as Tiny Tim. With bad puns, bawdy vaudeville humorisms, naughty double-entendres, and witty songs, it’s a raucous holiday treat! Rated PG
