Julian Nights Resound W,th Dickens" A Christmas Carol Rehearsals for the annual stage production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol are in full swing. At least three nights a week, the stained glass windows of Hillside Community Church are aglow with life as 50 people inside hammer lines and troll harmonies. These performers are working tirelessly to bring Charles Dickens' classic story to life, to be presented on the Julian Town Hall stage for two weekends in December. One of the things that directod 3roducer Sandra Sladkey finds so exciting about doing this 3roduction is that it benefits so many areas of the Julian community. Last year ticket buyers were surveyed, and about 70% of the nearly 1000 people who came to Julian to see A Christmas Carol (from places as far away as Arizona) stated that the play was the central focus of their visit. Most had a meal or two while they were here. Many stayed overnight. Not only does this endeavor provide a boost to local businesses, but it fills a void in the community for those with a love of participation in live theater. Apart from school plays and the annual melodrama, there is no other outlet in Julian for thespians to indulge their love of acting. The production this year is bursting at the seams with 27 children and 33 adults. "The challenge," says Sandra, "will be where to stash all these )erformers' bodies in the Town Hall during the play! There are craft shows going on downstairs throughout the run of the play. This year we will erect a small tent outside with a heater running. In past years, when it was rainy and blustery outside, moms of young actors parked their mini-vans in the Town Hall parking lot and the children stayed there until they were needed on stage. You do what you can to make this work for all these people who want to be a part of it." One might wonder what it's like to work with so many people at once. "It's a complete delight," says Sandra. "A few of the participants are people I don't see at any other time of year. Having them come together again is like Old Home Week! I love getting to know the new ones and to watch them develop relationships with each other. This whole process seems to infuse life into our community." She expresses gratitude to local residents Don Winslow and Scott and Deborah Kinney, who kept the tradition going for many years before she took it on. The play opens December 9 and runs through December 18, with five evening performances and four matinees. Performances in 2009 and 2010 sold out. Many attendees have made this theatrical production a part of .their Christmas tradition. If you would like to add a bit of "Olde English Christmas" to your holiday season, you can reserve tickets by calling Julian Stage Company at (760) 765-3789. December is time to renew your Chamber of Commerce membership and vote for the Board of Directors. Pay early and save on member dues. Eagles Athletics FALL SPORTS AWARDS BANQUET- 8pm Monday.
