'Christmas Carol' alive with gifted singers, dancers, orchestra
Last updated 12/4/2008 at Noon
The Temecula Valley Players’ production of “A Christmas Carol” opened at the Old Town Temecula Theater on November 28 and runs on selected evenings though December 14.
The genius of eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (“Beauty and the Beast,” “The Little Mermaid”) is evident in the production, which is filled with his inspiring tunes. The lyrics were written by Lynn Ahrens and the book was written by Mike Ockent along with Ahrens.
The inspiration behind the local success is musical director Victoria Mora-Collins, choreographer Gary Iverson and director Jeremy Lapp.
