Tempo - - Entertainment -

THE “spir­its” of the sea­son are brought to life once again as Globe LIVE and 9Works Theatri­cals brings Menken & Ahrenn’s “A Christ­mas Carol” back on stage for this hol­i­day sea­son.

Af­ter its suc­cess­ful 2016 run, the whole fam­ily can once again cre­ate new tra­di­tions by re­liv­ing the Charles Dick­ens clas­sic through im­pec­ca­ble pro­duc­tion and clas­sic mu­sic.

“A Christ­mas Carol” tells the story of a miserly man who finds hap­pi­ness in shar­ing the joys of the sea­son af­ter be­ing vis­ited by the ghosts of Christ­mas past, present, and fu­ture.

Start­ing Dec. 1, 2017, “A Christ­mas Carol” will pre­miere with some new cast mem­bers and a new pro­duc­tion set.

It will pre­miere on Dec. 1 at the Globe Iconic Stage, BGC Am­phithe­ater, Taguig, this time with Franco Lau­rel as the Ghost of Christ­mas Past. Repris­ing his role as the cur­mud­geon Scrooge is the sea­soned Miguel Faust­man.

Globe LIVE’s strength­ened part­ner­ship with 9Works The­atri­cal in stag­ing award win­ning Filipino pro­duc­tions helps Filipino tal­ent shine even brighter on the fam­ily-friendly venue.

Ac­cord­ing to Joe Caliro, Globe Head for Cre­ative Mar­ket­ing and Multi-Me­dia Ser­vices, and the mu­si­cal’s ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer, “’A Christ­mas Carol’s’ sec­ond run is part of our ef­fort to en­cour­age our cus­tomers in cre­at­ing new tra­di­tions with the whole fam­ily.’’

Mak­ing this year’s pro­duc­tion ex­tra special is Globe LIVE’s sup­port for the HERO Foun­da­tion through the “Wall of Mir­a­cles”. To be able to sup­port more mil­i­tary or­phans and send them to school, all of “A Christ­mas Carol’s” show will have the “Wall of Mir­a­cles” dis­play that guests will be in­vited to dec­o­rate with Christ­mas or­na­ments that will be sold at the venue. All the pro­ceeds from the sale of the or­na­ments along­side an ad­di­tional do­na­tion from Globe LIVE will be turned over to the HERO Foun­da­tion.

A non-stock, non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, HERO stands for Help, Ed­u­cate and Rear Or­phans. It has been pro­vid­ing ed­u­ca­tional stipends to mil­i­tary or­phans.

The Globe LIVE and 9Works Theatri­cals stag­ing of Menken & Ahren’s “A Christ­mas Carol” will run from Dec. 7 to 10, Dec. 14 to 17, and Dec. 21, 22, 25 to 27 at the Globe ICONIC Theater, BGC. To know more about the show sched­ules and buy tick­ets, visit http:// glbe.co/acc-tix.
