Pollard Theatre is bringing back its ‘A Territorial Christmas Carol’


GUTHRIE — When Richard Lemin stepped onto The Pollard Theatre stage to audition for the venerable company’s upcoming holiday production, Jared Blount made a silent wish. 

“Before he said anything, I was like, ‘Please be good.’ And he was. … We cast him, and then, at the first rehearsal, he’s like, ‘I have to tell you something: James Ong was my roommate in college,'” said Blount, The Pollard’s artistic director.  

“And I was like, ‘Well, that was meant to be.'” 

With a new lead actor and a new set, The Pollard is reviving its popular yuletide play “A Territorial Christmas Carol” — Oklahoma playwright Stephen P. Scott’s Sooner State version of Charles Dickens’ often-adapted holiday classic — live and in person for the first time in five years.
