Ira David Wood III of Theatre in the Park's A CHRISTMAS CAROL
From December 11th-22nd, Theatre in the Park will be presenting their 45th anniversary production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL. I recently had the great pleasure of interviewing the show's playwright, Ira David Wood III, who is not only back directing this year, but he’ll also be alternating the role of Ebenezer Scrooge with his oldest son, Ira David Wood IV. Ira David Wood III is the Founder & Executive Director of Theatre In The Park, which happens to be North Carolina’s largest community theatre with an international reputation. David is also best known and loved for annually portraying the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge in his own stage musical adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, which is getting ready to put on its 45th anniversary production this month. The show has been performed annually since 1974 and has been named one of the "Top 20 Events in the Southeast" as well as "one of the most successful shows in North Carolina theatre history." Be sure to catch Theatre in the Park’s 2019 production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL. It will be playing at Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts from December 11th-15th and at the Durham Performing Arts Center from December 18th-22nd.
