It was that hoariness that provided the impetus for Spotlight Theatre Companys presentation of Inspecting Carol, a meta-comedy about a regional theater companys production of A Christmas Carol going disastrously awry.
We wanted to do something with a holiday theme, explains Pat Payne, the shows executive producer, but there are so many productions of Christmas Carol in town every year, we just wanted to do something different. This basically takes A Christmas Carol and turns the script upside down.
Expect hijinks to ensue when the show opens at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the John Hand Theater, 7653 East First Place in Lowry. The run continues Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 6:30 p.m. through December 18. For tickets, $20, and information, call 720-880-8727 or visit www.thisisspotlight.org.
Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 6 p.m. Starts: Nov. 27. Continues through Dec. 18, 2010
