Enjoy a Christmas interlude with Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol'

The “Christmas Interludes” have returned to Boise after a 10-year hiatus. Originally produced by the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, a group of actors led by Tony Award-nominated sound designer, musician and actor Peter John Still have picked up the baton this season, bringing back performances of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday tale “A Christmas Carol.”

Still, who hails from England, is producing the 40-minute condensed theatrical version of the book, complete with festive music, performed by a company of professional actors: Stitch Marker and Rod Wolfe as Scrooge, Annie Bulow and Veronica Von Tobel as the female characters and Still as sundry male characters.

Though they mostly book private parties the company is offering two public performances this season:

You can see Wolfe, Von Tobel and Still perform at Hyde Park Books, 1507 N. 13th St., Boise, on Dec. 7. Suggested donations: $5 for kids, $10 for adults.

The group also will perform at 7 p.m. Dec. 21 at The Mode Lounge, 800 W. Idaho St., Boise, $12 at the door. For reservations, call: 830-6657.
