Season 103

December 3-6 & 10-13, 2020

The Charles Dickens holiday classic comes to life as a live 1940s radio broadcast, complete with vintage commercials for fruitcake (extra-fancy), and the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring. A handful of actors bring dozens of characters to the stage, as the familiar story unfolds: Three ghosts take Ebenezer Scrooge on a thrilling journey to teach him the true
meaning of Christmas. A charming take on a family favorite that will leave no one saying & Bah Humbug!

TRASHAN DONALD

This will be Trashan’s first time in the seat of the Assistant Director, and she thanks Director MJ Wisniewski for the amazing opportunity! Trashan was most recently seen on Pit & Balcony’s stage as Laura in Steven Martin’s Meteor Shower. Prior to that, she made her debut in community theatre as Eileen in P&B’s production of Ken Ludwig’s Moon Over Buffalo. Her theatre experience dates back to 2005, where she was given her first lead role, casted as Oprah Winfrey for her elementary school’s D.A.R.E program promotion play. She went on to exploring her passion in her high school years at Carrollton High, where she is most remembered for her role as Sylvia in Up the Down Staircase and Grace in A Christmas Carol. Outside of the theater scene Trashan is a credentialed Medical Assistant, mother, and fiancé. She would like to send a huge thank you to Sharrief Beamon for inspiring her return to the stage; her fiancé, Steven, for his endless support; and Amy Spadafore, for the influence she has had on Trashan’s community theater experience.
