St. Luke’s Community Theater Company’s “A Christmas Carol” starts at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9.

The show, which runs through Nov. 18, features actors from the Community of Christ-St. Luke’s Church as well from all over Western Washington, including North Seattle and Lacey.

The play, a musical version of the famous Charles Dickens story, was written by native Seattleite David A. Austin.

St. Luke’s does a different play every year in the winter, but this is the first time in several years that the play has had a holiday theme, said director and choreographer Loretta Deranleau Howard.

“We felt it was the best in terms of the holiday genre,” Howard said.

The church also lends its sanctuary for the set, which stays up for the entire season of the show. The church works around the background and stage during services.

The cast has been in rehearsals since the first week in September to get ready for the early November opening.

“This version is a full-blown musical,” Howard said. “The scenes are thrown in to tie the songs together.”

The play also differs in that the ghosts are somewhat different from the original version, Howard said.

Performances for the play are at 8 p.m. Nov. 9, 10, 16 and 17 as well as 2 p.m. Nov. 17 and 18. Ticket prices are $8 for individuals or $25 for immediate family members.

St. Luke’s Church is located at 515 S. 312th St., Federal Way. To learn more, call (253) 941-3000 or visit www.stlukesfedway.org.
