You are invited to the Baraboo Public Library at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, November 15, for a sneak preview of a re-imagined staging of the perennial holiday classic, "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. Area resident, Rauel LaBreche and members of the Sauk Prairie Theatre Guild worked throughout the spring and summer of this year to create this new version in a manner they hope is more faithful to the original story than any staged version before it. This is done primarily through a group of narrators that infuse much more of Dickens' prose into the staging than is usually the case.
This special behind-the-scenes look at the one of the greatest holiday stories ever written will include selections performed by cast members, as well as a presentation of background information, and a question and answer session with the director.
The full production will happen in December, and is supported, in part, by a grant from the Sauk County UW Extension, Arts and Culture committee and the Wisconsin Arts Board, with funds from the State of Wisconsin.
