  The Youngstown Playhouse has extra-special plans for the holidays this year. A Main Stage production of Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol, will be offered December 1-10, and will feature a combined cast of veteran performers and area children and teenagers, as part of a collaboration with the Playhouse Youth Theater program. A Christmas Carol tells the familiar story of Ebenezer Scrooge, whose miserly ways are changed forever when he is visited by ghosts one fateful Christmas Eve. The stage adaptation by Paul Kimpel, with additional dialogue by David El’Hatton, remains faithful to Dickens’ story in a production infused with youthful energy. El’Hatton also directs, with Kate Pelini serving as stage manager. Tim McGinley appears as Scrooge, with Christopher Scott playing Bob Cratchit and Kenny Day in the crucial role of Tiny Tim. Alan McCreary, Molly Galano, Carlos Rivera, Nathaniel Lopez and David McCune will portray the ghosts who visit Scrooge. Other principal roles are assigned to Kathy Leeper, Terri Wilkes, Hannah Boyle, Matt White, Nathan Marsh, Talia Rishel, Brendan Byers, Jenna Weiser, Leslie Mausteller, Nicole Barber, Aubrey DeJacimo, Margaret Levy, Russell Pavla, Elainie Huncik, Renee Cuerden and Mikey Zoccali.
