(CHATHAM, NJ) -- The Chatham Community Players will kick off their 101st Season with the hilarious “Inspecting Carol” by Daniel Sullivan and the Seattle Repertory Theater. The production runs from October 14-23, 2022. Photographer John Posada was at a dress rehearsal to take photos.

Often described as “A Christmas Carol” meets “The Government Inspector” meets “Noises Off”. The Soapbox Playhouse will lose its funding unless their annual production of A Christmas Carol can really impress the Inspector sent by the National Endowment for the Arts!! But who is he? When will he arrive? Is he at the theatre already? The director is desperate! The cast is discombobulated! Why is Tiny Tim so big?!! “A Christmas Carol” goes terribly, hilariously wrong - with mistaken identity, wardrobe malfunctions and backstage high-jinks! It’s a Dickens of a show! Director Wesel added, “This is your chance to step backstage in a small, regional theatre and see what happens to a heartfelt, holiday classic when everything falls apart!  

Belle Wesel of New York City returns to the Chatham Playhouse to direct this play. Her previous work at this theater was her hilarious production of “The 39 Steps.”
