christmas carol editedAAUW of Medina County presents Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, performed by the Largely Literary Company at the historic St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on Sunday, December 6th at 2:00 P.M.  The event is a fundraiser for AAUW’s Scholarship Fund, which provides financial aid to non-traditional women college students.

AAUW has awarded two scholarships annually since 1991.  The requirements are as follows: the recipient must be officially registered at a college or university, and must be older than a traditional college student.  Awards are given on a basis of financial need.  Since most applicants must make considerable sacrifices to attend college, it is frequently difficult to select only two.

The Largely Literary Company features Mark Dawidziak, the T.V. and Entertainment critic for The Cleveland Plain Dealer who plays Charles Dickens as well as a number of secondary roles.

His wife, Sara Showman, and local performer Tom Stephan are the other two actors in this 90 minute, faithful adaptation of Dickens’ classic tale.  This production is performed with minimal props on a simple set that never changes.  The skilled actors, playing multiple roles, allow us to “see” everything – from Marley’s face on Scrooge’s doorknocker to the terror Marley’s spirit creates in Scrooge when he wraps his ghostly chains around Scrooge’s wrists.

The Company has toured this program in Northeast Ohio for the past nine years, but this is the first performance in Medina.

    Dear Gloria:

    Beautiful website and thanks for the helpful blogroll. I have seen other Mark Dawidziak performances and enjoyed this talented actor’s roles very much. Therefore I’m on my soapbox urging our fellow AAUW members to attend the show and add to our coffers at the same tme.
