Next on The Carriage House Players’ fall season playbill will be I Ought to Be in Pictures, a Neil Simon comedy, and a twist on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, with the story told from a different character’s point of view.

The Carriage House Players, formerly Arena Players Repertory Theater, performs year-round in the Carriage House Theater, located in the Education Center at the Vanderbilt Museum, 180 Little Neck Road, Centerport.

This charming, hilarious, and uplifting classic focuses on Herb, a Hollywood scriptwriter currently “at liberty,” who is surprised when his forgotten past reappears in the form of Libby, a teenage daughter who’s trekked from Brooklyn with dreams of movie stardom.

With Steffy, his sometime paramour, at his side, Herb decides to take another stab at fatherhood and, hopefully, get it right this time.

Performances are set for Fridays, November 10 and 17, and Saturdays, December 11 and 18, at 8:00 p.m., and Sundays, November 12 and 19 at 3:00 p.m.

Tickets: $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and children.

To purchase tickets, call 516-557-1207.

The Fall 2017 season will conclude with Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol by Tom Mula, which will run Fridays, December 8 and 15, and Saturdays, December  9 and 16, at 8:00 p.m., and Sundays, December 10 and 17, at 3:00 p.m. Tickets: $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and children.

You know the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, but what about his infamous partner, Jacob Marley? See the story of A Christmas Carol told from a different perspective. This riotously funny and touching evening of theater proves redemption is possible for anyone.
