A Christmas Carol

Coming to our stage December 11-13: Hear A Christmas Carol as Charles Dickens himself performed it. This virtual performance is scheduled for Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Watch from the comfort of your home! Visit http://our.show/wcplayers/achristmascarol for more information.

In 1867, the great writer (and keen amateur Thespian) Charles Dickens visited New York City in early December. There he gave two platform readings of A Christmas Carol. One was held at the Steinway showroom on East 14th Street and one was held at a church in Brooklyn. Lines of eager audience members almost a mile long formed at each venue. West Coast Players recreates this classic performance without the weather or the wait in line. Paul Fegan stands in for Dickens and works from Dickens own prompt book stored in the Rare Books collection of the New York City Public Library

You will never think of Dickens, Scrooge, Christmas or ghosts quite the same way again.

Almost, Maine is a sweet romantic comedy that inventively explores the
mysteries of the human heart. On one deeply cold and magical Midwinter
night, the citizens of Almost -- not organized enough for a town, too
populated for a wilderness -- experience the life-altering power of the human
heart. Relationships begin, end, or change beyond recognition, as strangers
become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers.
Propelled by the mystical energy of the aurora borealis and populated with
characters who are humorous, plain-spoken, thoughtful, and sincere,
Almost, Maine is a series of loosely connected tales about love, each with a
compelling couple at its center, each with its own touch of sorcery.
Almost, Maine is an ensemble play about 9 different couples in various
stages of falling in or out of love.  In the original production, the nine
couples were played by two female and two male actors. The number of
actors in the WCP 2021 production will not be determined until after
