A Christmas Carol

The University of Idaho’s production of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” was broadcast online earlier this month, despite challenges with organizing and presenting the event entirely online. Organizers said the entire production — including design meetings, actors’ meetings with dialect coaches, and the show itself — was conducted over Zoom.

Of course, our audiences would otherwise love to go and see it in the Hartung Theater, but now they get to sit by the fireplace and grab their eggnog, sit in their own comfy chair with their pajamas on, light the fire and watch ‘A Christmas Carol’ as acted live on Zoom by the fine actors from our community and students in our department,” Craig Miller, an assistant professor at the university’s biology department who is also directing the show, told the Spokesman.

The performance was repeated several times earlier this month, with tickets costing $10, $20 or “pay what you can” for early shows.
