Casting Call for Scrooge and Marley

& Marley is a modern-day variation on Charles Dickens’ classic
story of the holidays, A Christmas Carol. Recounted from a gay
sensibility, with heart, comedy and music, the magic of Dickens’
timeless tale of a man’s redemption at the holidays-thanks to the help
of three ghostly spirits-comes alive from a fresh perspective that will
appeal to audiences of every persuasion.

Several actors are already tentatively signed to the project, including: Megan Cavanagh (A League of Their Own, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Exes and Ohs); Rusty Schwimmer (North Country, The Surrogate, Drop Dead Diva, Bones,
); Ronnie Kroell (Bravo’s Make Me a Super Model, Eating Out-Drama Camp and Into the Lion’s Den); and Becca Kaufman, a renowned Chicago-area vocalist.
