Hale Centre Theatre is pleased to announce the casting of Cory McCloskey and Rob Stuart as Scrooge in Hale’s 16th annual production of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Cory McCloskey will head up Red Cast and and Rob Stuart will take on the mantle with the Green Cast. A little about these two amazing actors:
Cory McCloskey (Red Cast) is the friendly weather guy on FOX 10 Arizona Morning, but for many years before entering the weather business, he made his living in theater, film and television. He performed on stages in New York, Philadelphia, Washington, and Baltimore in roles as diverse as Josephine in Sugar, The Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz, and young Michael Hudson on NBC’s Another World. Cory is also a busy stand-up comedian, shining his funny light on marriage, kids, work, and pets. This is Cory’s fifth season portraying Ebenezer Scrooge.
Rob Stuart (Green Cast) is an award-winning stage and voice-over actor, who has acted in local theatre productions for more than 30 years. Some of his favorite roles have been on the Hale stage. Among them: Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady, Orin Scrivello in Little Shop of Horrors, and Otto Frank in The Diary of Anne Frank. Rob is also the current President of the ariZoni Theatre Awards of Excellence.
We look forward to working with these two incredible actors.
