CHIMACUM — Sunfield Waldorf School students will present a version of “The Christmas Carol” that includes a Christmas market that hearkens back to the streets of old London.
The performances will be at Chimacum Grange, 9572 Rhody Drive today, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The house will open at 5:45 p.m. with a small Christmas market and the performance will begin at 6:30 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, the market will open at 2:15 p.m. and the play will begin at 3 p.m.
A donation of $10 per person would be welcome.
Charles Dickens “is so detailed in his descriptions that his characters are a delight to develop and breath into life through a play,” said Helen Curry, who directs the play performed by seventh- and eight-grade students.
The students read the classic novella and made study of what the life of their characters might have been like in London round 1843, she said.
The play is presented in a traditional way, staying true to the text, but it is accompanied by non-traditional depictions of the liveliness of old London.
The singing of traditional English Christmas carols will be woven throughout the play.
The Christmas market will offer pies, breads and crafts with market cries.
