Dorset, VT – The Dorset Players will ring in the holiday season with Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol in a delightful version dramatized by Ray DeMattis and Players member William John Aupperlee.

The Dickens classic is now in rehearsal with a cast of twenty-four under the direction of Don Petersen, music director Lorri Bond and choreographer Kelly Gaiotti. Cheryl Gushee is the producer of the holiday show. A Christmas Carol follows miserly Ebenezer Scrooge as he travels with ghostly guides through Christmas past, present and future to discover the true meaning of the holidays. The DeMattis-Aupperlee version of the classic holiday story was originally performed at the St. Bart’s Playhouse in New York City. Kevin O'Toole, a veteran of the Dorset stage, plays the key role of Scrooge. Also appearing in the show are Evan Cassan (Tiny Tim), Josh Bond (Bob Cratchit), Kristin Kimball (Mrs. Cratchit), and Skip Dickinson (Bob Marley) among other children and adult performers from throughout the region.
