This past Saturday and Sunday evening Madison’s drama group presented an adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” entitled “A Christian Carol”. The drama was written and directed by Kelly Hughes, a very talented lady in many ways. The Producer was Mark Carver who added his professional talents to a wonderful production. The lead roll of Scrooge was played by Mark Gage. Mark had never acted before, but no one would have ever guessed that from his performance. Mark never missed a line as he portrayed the transformation in the life of Ebenezer Scrooge.

Another memorable cast member was Dean Dowell, who played the character of Jacob Marley, the departed business partner of Ebenezer. Dean gave a moving portrayal of the remorseful Marley who sought to keep Ebenezer from traveling the road he had.

As the play ended the cast received a standing ovation for those in attendance. Kudos to cast and crew for a wonderful production. But this was more than just a wonderful production, its message was heard loud and clear. Kelly shared that, “Just one of the many stories we heard, one lady came who was a friend of someone in the cast. She was baptized in the church many years ago but hadn’t attended anywhere in years. She wept throughout different parts of the play and we pray for the continued impact of the play and how it may lead her back to a relationship with the Lord.”

So what is next for the drama group? Kelly says,….”Uncle Phil’s Diner” will take place April 21-22 and 28-29, starring your Uncle Phil, Phil Barnes, of course. (Phil is our Senior Minister at Madison) This interactive dinner theater will transport you back in time to the 1950’s”.
