I can't believe it's already time for the JTMF Winter Event, featuring a staged radio play. To your left is the gorgeous poster for Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol,' which will have 4 performances: December 2nd and 3rd at 8:00 PM and December 3rd and 4th at 2:00 PM.
Anthony E. Palermo's adaptation features all the characters we know and love; Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come, in a radio version with a live Foley (sound effects) crew.
The cast includes 8 JTMF regulars, including Dear D; K; Q; Matty; Maddie and (appearing in a JTMF show for the first time in 8 years), Uncle P himself as Marley, Fezziwig and the Ghost of Christmas Present. Tickets are $14 to $18 and can be purchased online at www.kelseyatmccc.org; by phone at 609-570-3333 or at the Kelsey box-office. Last year's production of It's a Wonderful Life sold out quickly, so order your tickets early to ensure the best seats.
Partial proceeds from our Winter Event benefit The Trevor Project, a toll-free 24-hour suicide prevention hot-line for LGBT and questioning youth. Our annual June production benefits The Open Arms Foundation; The James Tolin Memorial Scholarship at MCCC and The Trevor Project. Stay tuned for more information about our upcoming 10th Anniversary and our co-production with the MCCC Performing Arts Department of Hairspray (in which it is rumored that Uncle P will playing - God help me - Edna Turnblad).
Seriously, if you are in the Northeast, stop by to not only see a pretty terrific show, but help out some pretty terrific causes, as well. If can't attend, but want to help, you can always make a safe and secure donation via PayPal at www.jtmf.org, though we'd love to see your butt in one of our seats!
