Scrooge the Musical Celebrates 16 years of Success in Lockport

LOCKPORT, December 7 – The seats filled quickly with adults and children alike for Saturday nights 7:30 showing of Scrooge the Musical at the Lockport Palace Theatre.

Christopher Parada, Executive Director for the Historic Palace Theatre, gave his thoughts for the productions 16th annual release, “I’m excited.  We have had very heavy teen and youth participation this year.  It’s a great way for them to kick off the holidays.”

Chris also pointed to the productions relevance as a catalyst for local excitement, “This is a true community theatre show.  So, if you want to be in a show, or think: It would be fun to get up there!  This is the show you should audition for.”

The cast is large this year for Scrooge, with over 60 experienced and amateur thespians bouncing taking the stage, engaging in rigorously rehearsed scenes that leave you reeling for more.  In combination with breathtaking lights, startling effects, and almost one-and-a-half million dollars in recent restorations, with more to come next year, the theatre itself is a vision to behold.
