Spartans shine in ‘A Christmas Carol’

Charles Dickens’ classic holiday tale “A Christmas Carol” has returned to Triad Stage with a cast and creative staff that includes many of UNCG’s own.

This year’s production is led by Director Sarah Hankins MFA ’16, now an adjunct faculty member at UNCG, and Musical Director Justin Cowan ’14, ’16 MM, who is pursuing a doctoral degree in conducting.

“It’s a fast 90 minutes that will take your breath away,” Hankins said. “At the end, you’ll wake up as if from a dream.”

The production’s creative team also includes student Annabel Brunk, Kelsey Hunt ’04 and Sara Ruth Tourek ’08 MFA. Alumni Jeff Aguiar ’01, Ben Baker ’16 MFA, Amy da Luz ’06 MFA and Laura Bess Jernigan ’16 MFA make up nearly one-fourth of the cast.

“A Christmas Carol” opened at the Hanesbrands Theatre in nearby Winston-Salem on Nov. 25 and will run through Dec. 24. For more information, visit triadstage.org.
