CRESTVIEW View From the Stage, the community's theatre troupe, presents Michael DiMaio's musical version of "A Christmas Carol" this weekend.



Charles Dickens' classic Christmas tale features a cast of 26 adults and 22 children, and costumes and sets evoking Dickens-era London.



Cast members include Nick Trolian as Ebenezer Scrooge, Lincoln Sayger as Bob Cratchit, Allie Howard as Tiny Tim, Samuel Wirt as Young Scrooge, Braya Faust as Scrooge's sister, Fan, and Douglas Black as Fred Scrooge.



The cast has rehearsed for more than two months, Berit Faust, of View From the Stage, said. Challenges included working around other events scheduled for the hall and having limited stage rehearsal time due to the expense of renting the hall.



The set, which was constructed off-site, is rising on the Warriors Hall stage this week.



Curtain will rise at 7 p.m. Friday.
