Associate Professor of Theater and Dance Michael Preston Debuts as Scrooge in A Christmas Carol at Hartford Stage

Trinity College Associate Professor of Theater and Dance Michael Preston’s favorite thing about playing Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol at Hartford Stage is undergoing the miserly character’s transformation. “I love Scrooge because he gets redemption,” Preston said. “It’s a great journey because I get to make that switch. Scrooge becomes the positive, and that’s the thing that we all crave—for things to change in a positive way. The story never gets old.” This year’s production of the classic Charles Dickens story, which opens on November 24, marks the play’s 20th anniversary at Hartford Stage. Preston is taking over the lead role from Bill Raymond, who had performed as Scrooge since 1998 before retiring last year. Read more
