‘It’s Christmas, Carol!,’ holiday romp at Oregon Shakespeare Festival


The Oregon Shakespeare Festival production of "It's Christmas, Carol!" From left to right are John Tufts, Mark Bedard, Brent Hinkley, and Kate Mulligan.

“It’s Christmas, Carol!” is a silly, fun holiday romp that turns the Charles Dickens’ classic, “A Christmas Carol” on its head.

This is the first time the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, has put on a holiday show. It is the Tony Award-winning festival’s first indoor play in 21 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The show, a world premiere, opened last Saturday at the Angus Bowmer Theatre and runs until Jan. 2.

“It’s Christmas, Carol!” is written by Mark Bedard, John Tufts, and Brent Hinkley and is directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh. 

Bedard, Tufts, and Hinkley starred in two Marx Brothers plays at OSF, “Animal Crackers” and “The Cocoanuts,” that proved quite popular with audiences. The trio return here as Groucho (Bedard), Chico (Tufts) and Harpo (Hinkley), as they add a whole lot of comic craziness.
