h a r l e s Dickens’ A Christmas Carol (originally titled A C h r i s t mas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost Story of Christmas ) w a s f i rst published in London on 19 December 1843. T h e n ovella about a miserly curmudgeon and his s p i r i t u al redemption after being visited by four ghosts o n C h r istmas Eve was an instant success. In fact, the lit t l e b o o k s o l d o u t within three days. A C h r i s t m a s C a r o l has proved so popular that, over the years, it ha s s e e n o v e r 5 0 f i l m and television adaptations, including versions sta r r i n g M i c k e y M o u se, Blackadder, the Flintstones and the Muppets. No t s u r p r i s i n g l y, t h e atre companies around the world have found the sh o w t o b e t h e c a s h cow that allows them to fund many of their more “n o n - c o m m e rc i a l ” e fforts. T h i s r a i s e s t h e q uestions “Why another Christmas Carol?”, “Why Te x a s ? ” , a n d “ W h y a musical?” T h e re ’ s n o d i s p uting the power of Dickens’ themes: social inj u s t i c e a n d p o v e r t y, the relationship between the two, and their ca u s e s an d e ff e c t s . However, some modern readers, especially those yo u n g e r o n e s , m i g h t have difficulty deciphering the Victorian prose of t h e o r i g i n a l . We thought an audience mi ght appreciate a more mo d e r n a n d c o l l o q u i al “translation” of the ma terial. Additionally, we fel t t h a t w e ’ d l i k e t o relate the show more directly to the American ho l i d a y t r a d i t i o n , r a ther than chronicling the English Christmas of th e 1 8 4 0 s . A n d f i n a l l y, we must confess, we are suckers for stories of red e m p ti o n . I n h e r i n t ro d u c t i on to Wallace O. Chariton’s This Dog’ll Hunt (a bo o k t h a t w a s t h e s o urce and inspiration for many of the “Texasisms” in o u r p l a y ) , t h e l a t e Ann Richards wrote: “Growing up, as I did, in rural Central Tex a s , I h e a rd s o m e of the most colorful spoken language exta n t . . . O f c o u r s e i t was country and rural and it was occasio n a l l y c ru d e . B u t mostly it was humorous. It added the sp a r k l e o f a s l i g h t smile to common talk.”

S o w e ’ v e u s e d t h is “common talk” to tell our story. The richness of t h e Te x a s v e r b a l t radition clearly lends its elf to this treatment of Di c k e n s ’ s t o r y. T h i n k about it: can you imagine an adaptation called A N e w J e r s e y C h r i s t mas Carol ? M u s i c a l l y, w e s t rove to showcase the broad spectrum of musical sty l e s i n o u r s t a t e . I n a region with so many different types of music to a p p re c i a t e , w e w a nted to draw upon that di versity in the music for ou r s h o w. We h o p e y o u e n j oy it. Or, to put it another way, we hope you have mo re f u n t h a n a h o r ned frog on a red ant hill!

Myth: The performing arts are “extras” in school.

Truth:

Fort Worth Country Day considers the performing arts a primary pillar of a child’s education. Our performing arts program is robust and growing.

In times like these, some schools are cutting back their programs in the arts. Not Fort Worth Country Day. Our commitment to the arts is as strong as ever. Students participate in a multitude of creative endeavors under the guidance of committed professionals who are practicing actors, musicians, and teachers. FWCD families and alumni enthusiastically support arts education by attending concerts, plays, assemblies and musicals.

Writers & Director

Gary Moody (Book, Lyrics, Narrator) has worked as an actor, announcer, writer and director on stage and in films and television for over 35 years. As such, he is a member of Actors’ Equity Association (AEA), the Screen Actors Guild (SAG), the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA), and the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). Previous appearances at Circle Theatre include The Retreat from Moscow (Best Performance by a Male Actor, Fort Worth Weekly), Bus Stop (Column Award nomination) and Unnecessary Farce. His web site www.theOscarSite.com, which started out as a hobby in the late 1980s, has become a definitive source for information on the Academy Awards®. A graduate of the University of North Dakota, Gary is one of the founding members of refUNDtheatre, an organization devoted to funding recruitment of talented students to the UND Theatre Arts program. Gary Taylor (Music Director, Music & Lyrics, Guitar) was born here in Ft. Worth while his parents were students at TCU, so it is fitting that Circle Theatre is the setting for Gary’s musical work. Gary began playing guitar when he was 11 years old, and was composing music at 15. After taking piano and classical guitar lessons, he became interested in theory and composition. During his thirties, Gary could be found teaching high school mathematics and music theory, and playing music around town with his band, The Works. It was also during these years that he scored and recorded his first musical, McMulligan and Reigh, which was performed by his band, along with the SMU symphony orchestra. A master’s degree in mathematics and many more original songs followed through the years. He has also written a book on math and music, which he hopes to promote someday soon. Gary has 3 daughters, 2 granddaughters, 1 grandson, and a wife of 36 years. Chris Robinson (Director) is excited to make his Circle debut after last directing Ruthless! for Flower Mound Performing Arts Theatre. Earlier this year, Chris directed OnStage’s hit production of The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas. Some of his other directing credits include: Greater Lewisville Community Theatre, Guys & Dolls; Sage & Silo: The Rocky Horror Show & Cotton Patch Gospel; OnStage: La Cage Aux Folles. Chris has performed in the DFW theater community for over 19 years, as well as several regional theaters across the country. A Rabin and multiple Column award winner, Chris serves on the board of directors for The Column Awards and produces the multi-media for the ceremony each year.

In my time here I have learned the importance of dedicated subscribers and experienced the joy of working with people who share your passion. Thank you for welcoming me so warmly. It has truly been my pleasure to serve you.

As I leave, we say “Hello” to Gary Payne, who has graced the Circle stage, tech booth, and box office on many occasions for the last 25 years. If you’re an avid theatregoer, you also may have seen him at Stage West, and Artisan Center Theatre, among others. Circle is thrilled to have Gary as a full-time employee and I know you will give him the same welcome you gave me. Best Regards,

Rachel C. Mazzanti
