HOUSTON – The show must go on for Alley Theatre this holiday season.
A digital production of “A Christmas Carol,” the timeless holiday classic by Charles Dickens, is in the works, and Houstonians can watch it for free.
In a press conference Tuesday, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner joined the theater’s Artistic Director Rob Melrose to announce plans for the virtual production.
After COVID-19 forced the theater to shut down, event organizers have been forced to be creative and re-imagine productions this year, Turner said in the release.
“It’s going to be a very unique, very intimate ‘Christmas Carol’ like none you’ve never seen before and its going to be special," Melrose said. "And the fact that all Houstonians can take part in it, is pretty wonderful.”
