KRL covers a lot of theatre, both local and in other parts of California, and we have taken our readers behind the scenes many times to get to know actors, directors, and others involved in putting a show together. This week we are once again doing a q and a with a local actor-this time it is Alex Vaux, who is currently playing Bob Cratchit in GCP’s production of A Christmas Carol at 2nd Space in Fresno.

A Christmas Carol has been one of my all time favorite stories for as long as I can remember and I have seen many versions of it, including the Patrick Stewart one, and local actor/director Chris Mangels one man show version (3 times now I think at least). So when I saw that it was on the schedule for the Good Company Players season at 2nd Space in Fresno, well of course I was going to go.

Watching A Christmas Carol is a part of our Christmas tradition, whether we are lucky enough to see it on stage, or we watch Patrick Stewart’s version on DVD. It has been one of my favorite stories ever since I played the Ghost of Christmas Past at my elementary school’s annual production when I was in sixth grade. One of the best performances of this story I have ever seen was Chris Mangels one-man show and I am thrilled to share that he will be presenting a reading of that show on December 6 at 2nd Space in Fresno.

Everyone knows the famous story of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. It tells of a greedy old man named Ebenezer Scrooge who hates Christmas and is mean to everyone. Then one night he is visited by three ghosts who change him forever.

My Christmas season isn’t complete until I have seen A Christmas Carol in some form, as it is one of my favorite Christmas stories. This year I got a jump-start on that by seeing it on stage presented by Good Company Players at 2nd Space in Fresno.

Ghostly Encounter: A Christmas Short Story

by Herschel Cozine


I was ten years old. That was a long time ago, before television and all of the electronic gimmickry that permeate today’s world. We, my younger brother, Timmy and I, got our entertainment by listening to the radio, usually with the lights out as Inner Sanctum and some of the old, classic radio programs scared us out of our wits. Cool! There was nothing like a good scary radio program in the dark to get one’s creative juices flowing. Some of the best, deliciously awful pranks I pulled on Timmy were inspired while listening to the radio.

If you are looking for something special to do this Christmas, I highly recommend the one man show of A Christmas Carol, performed by Chris Mangels, now on stage at the Enchanted Playhouse in Visalia.
