Pasadena Theatre Company Presents “A Christmas Carol” Christmas-carol

Friday, December 6 and 13, 2013 at 8:00pm

Saturday, Decemeber 7 and 14, 2013 at 8:00pm

Sunday, December 8 and 15, 2013 at 3:00pm

In Studio 194 Theatre

Tickets: $19.00 for Adults & $15.00 for Children 12 & Under

Pasadena Theatre Company is renewing its own holiday tradition of presenting “A Christmas Carol” for a total of six performances at Chesapeake Arts Center.
“Set in Victorian London, “A Christmas Carol” tells the story of stingy merchant Scrooge, who chases carolers away in the plays opening scene and in another Christmas Eve scene counts the number of coals his beleaguered clerk, Bob Cratchit, burns to take the bitter chill from his office.
Dickens depicts the abuses of industrialization, including merchants’ greed and inhumane working conditions, with children being forced into harsh labor and deprived of education.
The message of “A Christmas Carol” is that miserly Scrooge is redeemable as he learns the lessons taught by visiting spirits of past, present and future Christmases, undergoing a transformation that enables him to celebrate the holiday. In the process, Scrooge also learns how to live the other 364 days of the year and realizes that his miserliness may have deprived and impoverished him as much as it has others.”

Bay Theatre Company Presents: Bad Dates

Fridays, January 10, 17 & 24, 2014

Saturdays, January 11. 18, and 25, 2014

Sundays, January 12, 19, and 26, 2014

In Studio 194

Fridays & Saturdays:7:00pm Doors | 7:30pm Show

Sundays: 1:30pm Doors | 2:00pm Show

Tickets: $24.00 + $4.00 Surcharge

Bad Dates begins with an introduction to one woman’s array of shoes and clothes: classy, earthy, cute, and even dangerous

Dating stinks, dating after a certain age is even worse, but dating while trying to raise a teen, run a business and evade past mistakes before they catch up, that’s even harder. Playwright Theresa Rebeck’s character, Haley Walker has confidence, competence, humor and introspection, all while battling insecurity, incompetence, black moods, impulsivity and a noir-ish plot twist.

Haley’s conversation with the audience begins like we’re old, trusted friends who’ve seen her at her best and worst. 

An evening with Rebeck’s Bad Dates makes for a great evening out. It’s an intriguing combination of performance and confession,. You  will  lean in close to hear more about Haley’s night with that guy who talked about his colon, and wince when later, she gets stood up. You will meet her eyes and smile sympathetically, and very quickly, we forget about her bags and boxes full of shoes, or the quality of her clothes, and focus all our attention on the character wearing them. That, it seems, is a very successful date.
