HPAC Presents ‘Scrooge in Rouge’ This November

A raucous holiday comedy comes to Hendersonville Performing Arts Company.

Scrooge in Rouge @ Hendersonville Performing Arts Company • Dec,3,2021The Hendersonville Performing Arts Company is proud to present the comedy, Scrooge in Rouge, opening Friday, November 26 and running through December 12.  Performances will be Thursdays (with the exception of Thanksgiving,) Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and on Sundays at 2 p.m.

This quick-change, cross-dressing version of the Charles Dickens classic is set in a Victorian music hall. The Royal Music Hall Twenty-Member Variety Players are beset with a widespread case of food poisoning. This leaves only three surviving members to soldier on through a performance of A Christmas Carol. The undaunted trio gamely face missed cues, ill-fitting costumes, and solving the problem of having no one to play Tiny Tim. Done in the style of British Music Hall, Scrooge in Rouge abounds in bad puns, bawdy malapropisms, naughty double-entendres, and witty songs. Scrooge in Rouge is recommended for mature audiences only. Masks are required to attend.

The Hendersonville Performing Arts Company is located at 260 W Main St #204, Hendersonville. For more information or to purchase your tickets, you can visit their website at hpactn.com or call the box office at 615-826-6037.
