Envision carolers singing in the streets of London and the joy of Christmas.

That was the scene Nov. 17 for Heritage Academy’s drama production of “A CHRISTmas Carol Revisited.”

The classic “Christmas Carol” tale was adapted by Texas author Sharon R. Manacapilli. Ebenezer Scrooge was played by Collin Poyle and Bryce Nigh portrayed Jacob Marley.

Cherie Clarke, Adam Long and Zach Muller played the three angels of Christmas.

Under the direction of Mrs. Rohrbaugh, the school’s art and drama teacher, the play brought the message of Christ to its audience, while also presenting a fun play to watch. In the beginning, Scrooge did not understand the real meaning of Christmas because he was not a Christian. Once he accepted Jesus Christ as his savior, he was able to celebrate and enjoy Christmas.

The set, constructed by members of the drama class, involved rotating walls that could present elaborate scenes such as Victorian London, Scrooge’s bedroom and the Cratchit house.

The Victorian dresses and suits and the intricate costumes of the angels were selected by the drama team with help from the Authentic Community Theatre costume shop in Williamsport.

Rachel Mongan, who played Mrs. Fezziwig, said, “This year’s play really got us into the Christmas spirit, and I had a lot of fun.”
