The Perkins High School Drama Club presented a familiar holiday classic – "A Christmas Carol" – as its fall production.
PHS junior Brodie Bibler plays the lead character, Ebenezer Scrooge, an insensitive, greedy old man who lives every day in misery, even the most joyous of occasions like Christmas Eve. His cold-hearted ways go as far as rejecting a Christmas dinner invitation from his jolly nephew, Fred, played by senior Drew Peiffer and overworking his loyal employee, Bob Cratchit, played by senior Franklin Whipple.
During the night of Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his former business partner and best friend, Jacob Marley, played junior Tyler Davis. Jacob Marley warns Ebenezer Scrooge that if he continues living out his days in despair, he will meet the same unkindly fate as him. In order to help his best friend, Jacob Marley sends three ghosts to visit Ebenezer Scrooge: the Ghost of Christmas Past, played by sophomore Cadence Bryant, the Ghost of Christmas Present, played by senior Kaydee Streng, and the Ghost of Christmas Future, played by sophomore Mackenzie Gibson.
Will these three powerful spirits be able to convince Ebenezer Scrooge to change his selfish ways? Word has it, they did at two outstanding performances on Thursday, November 17, and Friday, November 18.
