A scene from the Brooklyn Community Theatre production of "A Carol Play" written by Josh Gerard.
Audiences were treated to laughs with a message in the Brooklyn Community Theater production of “A Carol Play,” a one-act, faith-based play held Saturday, Dec. 17 and Sunday, Dec. 18 at the Brooklyn Opera House.
The play was written and directed by Josh Gerard, the Brooklyn librarian and local minister.
The performance was about a director on the eve of the big Christmas play who has entirely forgotten the reason for the season.
“In the middle of demanding perfection from his cast, the director sustains a head injury, and is then visited by the ghosts of Christmas plays past, present and future,” said Gerard of the production. “Through a series of hilarious events, they just might be able to remind him of what Christmas really means.”
Gerard has written eight plays and a musical, saying what he loves about writing is how he is able to put his sense of humor into them.
“I love to laugh, and hopefully my scripts make others laugh as well,” he said. “What I like about producing them is to get to see the script come to life by a group of talented people who believed in it enough to give up their time and help make it happen.”
Pictured are some of the scenes from the production.
