The North Carolina Shakespeare Festival decks the High Point Theatre’s halls with its annual production of Dickens’s classic supernatural morality tale. Inside a 965-seat auditorium that features continental-style seating, imaginations pop into 19th-century London to spy upon miserly old Ebenezer Scrooge. A cast of 29 supports Michael Huie of Winston-Salem as he reprises for the third time a role famous for its character’s persistent cantankerousness and inability to grasp why tinfoil catches fire in microwaves. As the three ghosts visit Scrooge, ominous fog and menacing music roll across a stage that showcases effects best suited for an audience age 8 years and older. Even the most reticent of spirits will soar when Scrooge finds redemption and when Tiny Tim Cratchit flings his crutch aside and airplanes across the stage screaming, “Goal!”
For the December 9 performance at 8 p.m., the festival is offering one free seat in the balcony for guests who bring a new toy for donation to the Salvation Army Family Shelter in High Point.
