An Actor's Carol Production

Bainbridge Island An Actor's Carol Stage Production-1

"Burned-out actor Hugh Pendleton, not-so-fresh from playing Scrooge one too many times in the backwater Bainbridge Island community theatre where his once promising career has met its unglamorous end, is surprised to encounter three spirits of his own in this latest work from Charles Evered, playwright of 'Celadine.' 

The Lesser-Known Players are honored to present this new and as-yet unpublished work by invitation from the playwright. 

Featuring original and suitably-irreverent holiday music by Bainbridge Island composer Jon Brenner, and several surprise cameo appearances by familiar faces from the local Kitsap County theatre community."
