A Christmas Carol …. Askew

Presented by the Big Bear Theatre Project

December 18th – 20th , 7:30 pm

December 21st, 4:00 pm

When asked for a brief description of A Christmas Carol …. Askew, Steve Cassling’s response is ”It’s indescribable!” A Christmas Carol … Askew is an original panto written by Steve Cassling. The show contains bold humor but stays family friendly with some slapstick humor for the kids. The show closely follows the story of the original Charles Dickens classic ”A Christmas Carol” with a few twists and turns. There is improvisation from the actors and the direction can vary from show to show depending on something as small as someone wearing a silly sweater in the audience.

The show involves teasing and is extremely interactive.

Ticket Prices: General $14.00, Senior $6.00, Student (w/ID) $6.00

Tickets and Info at (909) 866-4970 or at the PAC Box Office
