St. Francis High School Theatre Program Presents "A Christmas Carol"
On Friday, December 4 and Saturday, December 5, St. Francis High School hosted both live-stream and drive-in audiences for the 3rd annual production of “A Christmas Carol.”
The adaptation of the Charles Dickens story of the same name, is a tale of an aging businessman, Ebeneezer Scrooge, who thinks only of himself and his money. But, after visits from the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and of that Yet to Come, Scrooge changes to become a kind, caring and charitable person.
Presented by the St. Francis High School Theatre Program, under the direction of Brandon Lewis, Performing and Visual Arts Teacher, the production featured a cast and crew who make up 10% of the St. Francis High School student body.
As COVID has forced St. Francis High School to come up with creative solutions for teaching and learning, devising a plan to move forward with the annual production was no exception. To maintain COVID safety protocols and prevent risk exposure, audience members enjoyed animated performances from the comfort of their own home and car during the real-time broadcast which was livestreamed and projected on the outside wall of the Kuhn Cultural Arts Center. There were two separate casts for the show this year and each participated in two separate performances.
