OGDENSBURG -- St. John’s Conservatory Theater will present "A Kreepy Christmas Carol" on six dates.

The play is a musical comedy based on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Story."

Show times are 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings, Dec. 6, 12, 13, 19 and 20. There is a 2 p.m. matinée on Dec. 14.

Local talent from Ogdensburg and Canton make up the cast with, in order of appearance, Sloane Ryan as Nipper, Makayla Lovely as Abby, Hailey Webber as Letty, Jillian LeBel as Gusie, Elizabeth Bascom as Trudy, Cole Siebels as Cager, Anton Skamperle as Ollie, Dee Bellinger as Zinger and Tiny Tina, Christopher Dwyer as Bob Cratchit, R O’Donnell as Scrooge, Brad Mintener as Jacob Marley, Rebecca Bascom as the Ghost of Been There Done That, Ryan Woodard as Fezziwig, Angela Conzone Dwyer as the Ghost of Christmas Presents, and a surprise guest each night as the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come.

A reimagined Scrooge finds himself haunted by new ghosts, while facing new and familiar characters, in a tale presented in JCT’s signature commedia dell’arte/chamber theater style.

The interpretation of the Dickens classic includes original book, music and lyrics by award winning playwright and composer Brazillia R. Kreep, author of JCT’s last hit, "Alice Isn’t All There." Musical direction and vocal arrangements are by Angela Conzone Dwyer, orchestrations by Ryan McNally, set and prop designs by Stephen Chambers and costumes and makeup by Ann Losurdo and Maggie Gebo.

The show runs approximately 90 minutes. Tickets cost $15 at the door (suggested donation), or $10 at jctscrooge.brownpapertickets.com.

JCT is located on the second floor of St. John’s Parish House, behind St. Johns Episcopal Church on the corner of Franklin and Knox streets in Ogdensburg. Handicap parking is available off Franklin Street, and the theater is fully accessible.
