New faces include Joshua McGowan as Scrooge's nephew, the youthful apprentice Scrooge and the undertaker, with Jared Blount as Hamilton Moore, the Ghost of Christmas Present and other cameos including the pawnbroker.

These two are hilarious in the scene at the Pawnbrokers with Widow Brown and others almost to the point of caricature. The humor is a nice offset to the tragedy that may unfold if Scrooge doesn't wake up and “come to the party” of life.

The children are double cast so as not to overload young schoolchildren with excessive rehearsals. Callen Stewart is a very refreshing Tiny Tim. Matt Maloy plays William Moody and Peter Cratchit. Both children show a great deal of promise.

The remaining cast members all demonstrate a great deal of talent and dedication under Stevenson's guidance. The casts alternate so patrons who wish to see a particular young person should inquire at the box office to make sure they are reserving the right night.
