Dorothy Gets Scrooged a ‘mash-up’

Ladysmith Theatre performance mixes Christmas Carol, Wizard of Oz

What happens when you mash-up A Christmas Carol with the Wizard of Oz? Dorothy Gets Scrooged, is what, the Christmas performance of the Ladysmith Little Theatre.

Dorothy, years after her return from the Land of Oz, has become a successful business woman. Unfortunately, she has also taken on some of the character traits of Dickens’ most memorable miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, and is about to suffer a similar fate.

Seven years after the death of her business partner Elvira Havisham, Dorothy is visited by Havisham’s ghost, then by three other ghosts who try to show her the error of her ways.

But the outcome for Dorothy will not be what you expect, says the play bill. What you can expect is an ‘irreverently hilarious musical.’

Ladysmith Little Theatre will be mounting this hybrid from Dec. 10 to 31 at 4985 Christie Road. Tickets are $20, available through the Little Theatre box office which is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1 to 3 p.m. or online at www.ladysmiththeatre.com.
