Dallas’ premiere urban theater, Urban Arts Center (UAC) continues its 2nd season with a female focused adaptation of Charles Dicken’s
“A Christmas Carol.” Set in the heart of Dallas’ southern sector, An Oak Cliff Carol follows the journey of Elana Scrooge (JuNene K), a self-made business woman, as she is shown the err of her ways. Filled with all the familiar character, Dickens’ story, adapted by UAC Producing Artistic Director Jiles R King II, is filled with R&B, soul and gospel music.
“It goes without saying that the last two years has been excruciating.” Relates King. “As we slowly return to a sense of normalcy, theater is one aspect to guide us to that place. This musical is not only a classic but bends time, gender, race and religion. It reminds of the true essence of the season.”
