‘Scrooge’ back at Chautauqua
Northern California’s favorite holiday musical, “Scrooge,” comes to the Chautauqua Playhouse for the 33rd year.
With Rodger Hoopman in the title role for his 33nd year, the current production of “Scrooge,” directed by Warren Harrison, will feature a company of local favorites including Salina Donek, Warren Harrison (who has performed the role of Bob Cratchit for the past 18 years), Chris Lamb, Karen Sandoval and many other local actors.
The production includes an original musical score by Hoopman and Rob Knable which “weaves about a dozen clever songs through the threads of the original story … making the holiday musical a delight.” — Joanne Burkett, Roseville Press Tribune. This year’s production will also include a new opening number written by director Harrison.
