Iowa Stages S1E3--A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol has been a holiday tradition for ISTC (and predecessor company Repertory Theatre of Iowa) since 2009. Hosts Shawn Wilson, Matt McIver and producer Kyle Bochart talk with longtime Christmas Carol designer Jay Jagim, and veteran Scrooce Richard Maynard.  Jay was involved in the development of Michael Wilson's adaptation, which ISTC is bringing to Iowa for the first time, at the Alley Theater in Houston. Richard first performed as Crachit at Merrimack Rep, over 30 years ago.  These veterans are both bringing their talents to the Stoner Theater for this new, exciting adaptation of Dickens' timeless story.
