A Goblin’s Christmas Carol makes its way to the Ci Stage today and to the beautifully restored Orpheum Theatre in Champaign this weekend! The author of the play, Kenny Chumbley, as well as the director, Stephen Fiol, join us to provide details about the show.
The Orpheum Theatre will host A Goblins’ Christmas Carol on November 10th (7 PM), 11th (7 PM), and 12th (2 PM).
We get a taste of a performance by Dylan Holt, who plays Gabriel Grub (the bad guy) in the show. The song Dylan performs today is called “Song to Mercy” by Benjamin Payne.
It’s a family entertainment musical, the retelling of Charles Dickens’ “The Story of the Goblins Who Stole a Sexton,” which eventually became the prototype for A Christmas Carol.
