Project Discovery VIrtual Workshop: A CHRISTMAS CAROL 2018

......

Adaptation, Music & New Lyrics by Todd Almond || Conceived by Lear deBessonet
Based on the play by William Shakespeare

The story is told by Antigonus (Liz Mikel), and it all starts in the Kingdom of Sicilia, where King Leontes (J.D.Mollison) suspects of treachery from his wife Queen Hermione (Tiana K. Blair) with his friend King Polixenes of Bohemia (Ivan Jasso). When the Queen reaches her ninth month of pregnancy of a baby that Leontes suspects it’s Polixenes, King Leontes plots to kill Polixenes but he manages to escape. He then accuses Hermione of adultery and asks the Oracle of Delphi for proof. The Oracle declares Hermione’s innocence but he refuses to believe. Antigonus’ wife, Paulina (Sally N. Vahle) communicates to the monarchs that their older son, Mamillious (Alan Ramirez) has died of grief. The Queen collapses and Paulina takes her to sanctuary. Paulina comes back to King Leontes to announce the sudden death of Queen Hermione, which leaves King Leontes with a terrible heartache. He concedes to not sacrifice the baby, but he orders Antigonus to take her far away to die.

The newborn princess, who we come to know as Perdita (Ivey Barr) is left by Antigonus at the shore of Bohemia where he is eaten by a bear. A shepherd (Terry Thompkins) finds the baby princess and raises her as a shepherdess. She seems to be falling for a Bohemian boy named Florizel (Jeff Pope), whom she doesn’t know is the prince of Bohemia. King Ploixenes, who discovers them at a sheep-shearing festival, would not approve this match, so the couple elopes to Sicilia.
