Big Muddy Dance Company: A Christmas Carol

Gerry Love
The Big Muddy Dance Company is first on the boards with a holiday show (but just by days; see Wednesday), as it presents its adaptation of A Christmas Carol this weekend. The familiar elements of Charles Dickens' novella are all in place, but the story is told through contemporary dance and costumes. The miser Ebenezer Scrooge goes to bed on Christmas Eve presumably to dream of oppressing his employees and making more money but is instead visited by his long-dead business partner, Jacob Marley. Marley warns that three ghosts are coming to show him the error of his ways, and Scrooge isn't going to like what they have to show him. Big Muddy's production features choreography by artistic director Brian Enos and a live soundtrack of Tchaikovsky music arranged by Brendan Hollins. A Christmas Carol is performed at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday (November 14 and 15) at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; Tickets are $25 to $35.
