As fond as I am of "A Christmas Carol," after so many productions every year, it's a bit like the ubiquitous holiday fruitcake. So I created a play very loosely based on Dickens' famous story with characters easily recognizable from the original. Since "Showtime" isn't directly tied to the Christmas theme, it can be produced at any time of year. I also wanted to create a play within a play, and so there is the acting troupe and its eccentricities and rivalries and there is the DeWilder haunting.
The one-act version came about when I needed to direct a short play that could be produced in a few weeks with minimal sets. It was hugely successful because the actors had such fun creating the characters.
