HAMILTON-GIBSON POSTPONES “THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT,” CANCELS “A CHRISTMAS CAROL” AND CONSIDERS LIVE STREAMING “IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE”
Hamilton-Gibson Productions announced late Tuesday night, Oct. 27 following a meeting of the board of directors that “The Lifespan of a Fact” has been postponed indefinitely, “A Christmas Carol” has been cancelled and live streaming is being considered for “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
“The board made the decision based on community cases of COVID-19,” said Operations Coordinator Bev Dochstader after making the announcement by email at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27. “In the interest of safety for our audiences, we have decided to not hold in-person productions,” she said.
“We want to do ‘The Lifespan of a Fact” as soon as we can, but have no idea when that will be,” said Dochstader. Performances of this production were originally scheduled at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 6 and 7 and 13 and 14 and at 2:30 p.m. on Sundays, Nov. 8 and 15 in the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro.
“We are also cancelling “A Christmas Carol” entirely,” Dochstader said. “A Christmas Carol” was scheduled at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3, 4 and 5 and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6 in the Warehouse Theatre during Dickens of a Christmas weekend. One of the world’s most enduring holiday stories, “A Christmas Carol” was written by Charles Dickens 177 years ago. It is the tale of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, a coldhearted man who learns the value of love.
“‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ will be streaming, but the details remain to be seen,” she added. This beloved American Christmas classic performed as a radio show is currently scheduled for Dec 11, 12, 13, 18, 19 and 20. It is about a man who has problems and is thinking about ending it all. Instead, he rescues his guardian angel, Clarence who then shows him what his town would have looked like if it hadn’t been for all of his good deeds over the years.
