An excellent show with high production values, and performed wonderfully by a talented cast. Even the children were on par with the adult actors. I did find the video projections to be unnecessary and distracting. Dare I say it... cheesy. Having the actors do set changes is always a plus in moving a story along seamlessly, but having "Tiny Tim" do a set change seemed like an odd choice. Had he done the set change while using a crutch, then I would've bought it. It would've been cruel, but it wouldn't have lessened the impact of his last entrance when he runs out onto stage "lame" free. Okay enough nit-picking. The biggest star of the event would be the renovations to the theater. Cygnet has made this space a jewel. I heard the biggest kudos for Ladies room. If you were there for "A Little Night Music" go back for a visit and you'll know what I mean. Not a bad seat in the house, except for the extreme house right and house left. If you only have a choice of "B" area seats try to get seats closer to center. I can't wait to see "Assassins" at this theater.

We enjoyed this version of "A Christmas Carol" very much. The company did some amazing things with that set and the actors all did a fine job.
The "new" Old Town Theatre is very good looking and we look forward to enjoying many more plays...continued
