The nation, even the world, have been through dark days in the recent years. And as this year draws to a close, and we look back to the year that was. But one thing rings true—that whichever way the world turns, light always outshines darkness. Love will always trump evil. The yuletide season beckons a time of homecoming, gathering, and discovering life little’s wonders; bringing out, the miracle within.
Now on its second season, Globe Live and 9 Works Theatrical aim to create an annual Christmas tradition in the musical A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Inspired by the same idea as New York’s annual fare of staging A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Madison Square Garden, it invites to gather families every season in the same spirit, creating a sense of tradition in storytelling and gathering as a community.
Charles Dickens’ story resonates as the transformation of Scrooge represents every single person’s journey, of discovering the goodness that lies within all of us. As Ebenezer Scrooge goes from a man of indifference to compassion and from hate to love, the message of the show prevails—that love transforms and changes us all for the better. After years of idling by and living in the pits of bitterness and rage, Scrooge begins to see the light after the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future pay him a visit, stirring him back into the gentle, compassionate man he once was.
A Christmas Carol stars theater veteran Miguel Faustmann as Ebenezer Scrooge, Noel Rayos as Jacob Marley and Mr. Fezziwig, Franco Laurel as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Nico Dans as the Ghost of Christmas Present, Rissey Reyes as the Ghost of Christmas Future, and Jaime Yupangco and Elai Estrella as Tiny Tim.
A Christmas Carol is directed by Robbie Guevara, together with Onyl Torres as assistant director, Daniel Bartolome as musical director, PJ Rebullida as choreographer; Yek Barlongay for additional tap choreography, Ed Lacson as set designer, Dong Calingacion as technical director, Myrene Santos as hair and makeup designer, and Ian Cartalaba as costume head.
Heading the production team are executive producers Santi Santamaria (9 Works Theatrical) and Joe Caliro (Globe Live), Denise Seva (Globe Live Director for Events and Production), with 9 Works Theatrical’s Anna Santamaria as company manager, Sab Jose and Jonjon Martin as PR managers, GM Hernandez as marketing manager, Arma Bonilla as stage manager, Gian Nicdao as graphic designer and JC Inocian as photographer.
Globe Live and 9 Works Theatrical’s A CHRISTMAS CAROL will be shown at the Globe Iconic Bonifacio High Street Amphitheater, Bonifacio Global City on December 7-9, 14-16, 21-22 & 26-27 at 8:00pm, December 10 & 17 (Sundays) and December 25 Christmas Show at 7:00pm.
