Stage play brings areafamiliestogether
Christmas is certainly a time when mostpeople gather with family and friends for funand frivolity. It’s just a given nowadays. Fami-lies look for creative ways to enjoy the tidingsof the season. Some volunteer their time at asoup kitchen, some might wander their neigh-borhood streets singing Christmas carols andsome might hop in the car one evening anddrive miles just to look at thousands of Christ-mas lights.But, for a small group of people in northernKent County, they’ve chosen to celebrate theirChristmas holidays by taking to the stage. Thecast and crew of “The Christmas Carol”, whichnumbers well over 40, is comprised largely of people who just happen to be related to eachother.The production director boasts that it’struly a family affair.“It’s wonderful to see so many families in-olved in such a fashion,” said Terri Riggle,roduction stage director. “They’re having funnd spending a lot of time together in a worth-hile project.”Ebenezer Scrooge, is played by Rockford’sirgil Hubbard, and his wife, Kathleen, who’saking her acting debut on the Kent Theatretage, is playing the wife of the character Fred,crooge’s nephew. Cedar Springs resident Russole, who’s Bob Cratchit, is also given singingirection under the guidance of his wife Carol-e, who’s the production’s music director, andaura Johnson, who plays Christmas Present,lso enjoys being on stage with her son, Tom,ho plays Young Scrooge. And the list continues. There are twoother and daughter combinations, Judy andreAnna Schulz of Howard City and Eva Wal-ers and her daughter, Mystic also from How-rd City. Then there’s the Price family, all from
edar Springs, who have four out of their ve
embers involved in the play. Jon, the father,s playing dual roles of Mr. Fezziwig and thehost of Christmas Future, his wife, Tammy,s Mrs. Fezziwig, son Jordan is Dick Wilkins
