Christmas bells are ringing at the Palace Theatre as we welcome television, stage and screen star Charles Shaughnessy!
Seeing this beautiful show has become a tradition for many over the years and it will be here again, continuing to spread holiday cheer. Based off the book by Charles Dickens’, this touching and heartfelt story will be taken to a whole new level as we welcome television, stage and screen star Charles Shaughnessy as misery Ebenezer Scrooge himself!
Charles Shaughnessy hails from England and is best known to American audiences as Mr. Sheffield on the CBS hit show “The Nanny” opposite Fran Drescher, as well as for his work in the role of Shane Donovan on the daytime series “Days of Our Lives.” He recently portrayed Saint John Powers on AMC’s critically acclaimed series “Mad Men.” Mr. Shaughnessy’s many stage appearances include the triple Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Urinetown, Pasadena Playhouse’s acclaimed production of Orson’s Shadow and perennial favorites including Camelot and My Fair Lady.
A Christmas Carol tells the tale of grouchy old Ebenezer Scrooge whom in the midst of the holiday season learns the value of giving and what it means to be kind to the less fortunate. His old partner, Bob Marley, visits Scrooge and tells him that three ghosts will haunt him.
Scrooge’s clerk, Bob Cratchit, is struggling at home to provide for his family. Scrooge sees the conditions that the Cratchit family is living in and the poor health of Tiny Tim. The spirits teach Scrooge that having money does not make you rich, it is the relationships and values you hold that make you that way.
