Cast Change For Douglas Play
There is a casting change in The Second City’s “A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens!” presented at the Center Theatre Group’s Kirk Douglas Theatre. Ron West will join the cast to play the role of Ebenezer Scrooge.
Joe Flaherty was originally announced in that role but needed to leave the production for personal reasons. The twisted telling of Charles Dickens’ holiday classic will open November 29 and continue through December 30. Previews begin November 24.
Ron West (“3rd Rock from the Sun”) is an alumnus of the famed comic proving grounds of The Second City and joins the all-Second City cast of Frank Caeti (“MADtv”), Larry Joe Campbell (“According to Jim”), Dan Castellaneta (“The Simpsons”), Amanda Blake Davis (“Second City Does Dallas”), Brian Stepanek (“The Suite Life of Zack and Cody”) and Jean Villepique (“Up All Night”).
