WAKEFIELD — Starting to feel that holiday stress? You’re not alone. Even Mr. and Mrs. Bob Cratchit are feeling it in “Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge!” at The Contemporary Theater Company, 327 Main St. The comedy by Christopher Durang runs through Dec. 23.
The show takes everything everyone loves about Christmas, “A Christmas Carol,” and the pressure of the holidays and turns it on its head. All the favorite characters are still around — Scrooge, the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Cratchit family — but with cheeky twists.
The Ghost can't get her magic to work, Mrs. Bob Cratchit is a bitter, over-worked mother, and Scrooge — well she's as grumpy as ever.
The cast features Christine Cauchon, Tiffany Fenton, Laura Kennedy, Sami Avigdor, Terry Simpson, Devon Andrews, Carolyn Coughlin, Nick Fazio, Christine Magnotta, Sean Marran, Neal Motta, Sabrina Blaney, Katie Bootle, Josie Geremia, Gwen Lucia, Lily Weisz-Nesshoever, and Ju’elle West.
Performances will be held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. and on Sundays at 2 p.m.
