This marks the third year Masque Alfresco has mounted a hilarious, lively version of Christmas Carol. Dickens’ beloved characters have been sifted through the humorously skewed lens of commedia dell’arte, adapted and directed by Fayra Teeters. In this world Scrooge is a mumbling, fumbling Pantalone; Bob Cratchit is Arlecchino, literally bending over backwards to please; and The Ghost of Christmas Present is a pompous, gibberish-spouting Dottore.
