Woodland Opera House presents the holiday comedy ‘Inspecting Carol’

The Woodland Opera House presents the holiday comedy “Inspecting Carol” beginning Friday, Nov. 30, and running at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays through Dec. 23. There is an additional matinee at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15.

This comedy is “A Christmas Carol” meets “The Government Inspector” meets “Noises Off” and tells the story of a small theater company in a midsized city. The company is filled with many different characters, including Phil, the guy with chronic health problems; Larry, who always has new ideas to bring to the scripts; Walter, the war veteran who doesn’t know his lines; Luther, the kid who is too big to be Tiny Tim; MJ, the stage manager trying to get the show up and running; Zorah, the flaky director and company owner; and Kevin, who inherited their financial mess to fix.

When a man is mistaken for an informer for the National Endowment for the Arts, everyone caters to the bewildered wannabe actor and he is given a role in the current production, “A Christmas Carol.” Everything goes wrong and hilarity is piled upon hilarity. Perfect anytime, this delight is particularly appropriate at Christmas.

Reserved-seat tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors and students and $12 for children 18 and under. Balcony tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for children. All tickets may be purchased online at www.woodlandoperahouse.org or by calling 530-666-9617.

The Woodland Opera House box office, 340 Second St. in downtown Woodland, is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m Mondays through Fridays.
