Holiday classic staged at BHS

The Batesville High School Drama Club will present Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” Friday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 17, at 2 p.m. in the auditorium. Seating for this show is not reserved. Tickets will be available at the door for $5.

The play lasts about 90 minutes, so there is no intermission, says Batesville Middle School language arts teacher Lisa Barnett, who is directing the show with BHS art teacher Mary K. Cambron. This version was adapted by Jeffery Scott Elwell and produced in cooperation with Playscripts Inc.

“Children and adults will enjoy this holiday favorite,” she believes. “The cast and crew look forward to presenting ‘A Christmas Carol.’ Audience members will leave the show without a ‘Bah, Humbug’ attitude.”

Forty BHS students will bring “A Christmas Carol” to life. Senior Leo Giesey will portray Ebenezer Scrooge, the miser, who is visited by four spirits: Jacob Marley (Kegan Main), Christmas Yet-to-Come (senior Brooke Hartman), Christmas Present (Cole Nuhring), and Christmas Future (senior Brian Streit). The Cratchit family includes Bob Cratchit (Caleb Rogers), Mrs. Cratchit (senior Emily Bryan), Martha (senior Allyson Ritter), Belinda (Olivia McKnight), Peter (Caleb Moster) and Cindy (Alana Pinckley). Second-grader Ryan Stauffer will portray Tiny Tim.

Other seniors in the show include Trent Barnett (Fred), Sarah Hoseus (Fred’s wife, Elizabeth), Nick Vodzak (Fezziwig), Brittany Addison (Mrs. Fezziwig), Zach Brower (Young Marley), Austin Glaub (Topper) and Deepan Saravanan (Second Solicitor).

Other cast members include Erin Longstreth (Narrator), Audrey Wilson (First Solicitor), Brooklynn Weisenbach (Fanny), Lexi Eisert (Nell), Kyle Addison (Nell’s husband), Aidan Bell (Young Scrooge and Larchmont), Justin Hartman (Wealthy Businessman), Isaac Frank (Old Joe), Kate Brunner (Miss Grubb), Jenny Zins (Mrs. Dill), Samantha Heidlage (Gena), Ryan Chambers (Graves) and Damien Pelo (Undertaker’s Assistant).

Members of the ensemble include Maddi Ausenbaugh, Michaela Elmore, Emily Gutzwiller, Sydney Lecher, Emily Massey and Libby Stenger. Other children in the production include Ethan Lacey (Young Scrooge) and Jaden Smith and Trey Stauffer (Young Boys). Seventh-grader Daniel Gutzwiller will portray a young boy who purchases a turkey for the Cratchits.

An additional 20 students have been involved in working on the lights, sound, sets and props. Community volunteer Darin Hawley has spent numerous hours on set construction.
