In the midst of a season bustling with saccharine Yuletide cheer, The Comedy Roast of Mr. Scrooge replaces heartwarming with sidesplitting as the characters of A Christmas Carol eviscerate Ebenezer. A cast of local funnypeople step into the roles of urchins, ghosts, and other familiar faces from the mind of Charles Dickens to take much-deserved potshots at the old miser. From the producers of Bye Bye Liver, the show skewers the classic tale with an irreverent attitude, curing cases of excessive holiday spirit with tinsel-wrapped barbs and playbills that only contain the word “humbug.”
Actors Theater of Minnesota
Although it’s known for comedies such as the two-man, 24-character A Tuna Christmas, Actors Theater of Minnesota also places a significant emphasis on education and corporate training. At The Creative Institute, the ensemble trains students how to work theatrical media such as improv and writing into their everyday problem-solving skills.
