Director's Note

Welcome to the Masque Players production of Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol', oe of the most well known of Dickens' works. This is the story of Scrooge and the visits that he receives from the ghost of Marley (his former business partner) and the three ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, who try to make him realise the way he is leading his life is nto as it should be and he can change the error of his ways.

I was in the Masque Players production of 'A Christmas Carol' inm 1992, when I played the part of Peter Crachit and remembering that experience, I decided to direct the same play this year. This is the first time that I have directed a production with the Masque Players and it has been a pleasure working with such a great group. Also, this is the first time in the Masque Players history, we have three generations of the same family in one production, John, Patrick and Gus Cooney.

I hope you enjoy the show.
