Everything You Need to Know About Ulsan

A Christmas Carol in Ulsan!

Dongrami Theatre is performing the Charles Dicken’s Christmas classic, A Christmas Carol, at their space near Gonguptap rotary this weekend, December 21st and 22nd.

“Ebenezer Scrooge’s last chance is one night and three spirits. It’s a life-changing journey through the past, the present and the future as he learns what it means to be human. This one-hour adaptation of Dickens’ classic story is a ghostly tale of Yule-tide cheer, gracious redemption and heart-warming hope for the whole family. The story of a lonely, bitter man who placed wealth above human relationships and is redeemed one cold Christmas Eve is as significant today as it was in the 1800’s.”

The play is directed by Kerry Maher, an American living in Yongsan, and performed by five adult actors (2 Americans and 3 Koreans) and a children’s group of actors which includes four Koreans and six western children from the Hyundai Foreign School.

“I think this production is special because 6 actors play all the major roles,” says Kerry. “Also,  the Korean/American cast get to share in a timeless story that should be enjoyed and appreciated by audiences from any country. We are very fortunate to have the participation of the children from the Hyundai Foreign School. They have been wonderful to work with.”

Yoo Jung Im, the artisitic director of Dongrami Theatre, had asked Kerry to do something for Christmas.

“I chose A Christmas Carol, because for many years (since my mother died on Christmas day almost 20 years ago) I have been pretty much of a Scrooge on Christmas,” says Kerry. ” I thought it was time to change my attitude about Christmas, much as the character Scrooge does in the play.”

Performed in English by Korean and American actors, A Christmas Carol is a perfect evening for the entire family to remember and reflect on the real meaning of Christmas.
