Canyon Movement Company dancers/choreographers include director Gina Darlington, Cori Wall, Sarah Thomas, Jessica Taylor, Nathaniel Haviland, Chelsea Taylor, and Angie Danca. The story of Ebeneezer Scrooge’s is a story of charity, love, and compassion as we witness the changed heart of a stubborn old man. Ghosts from the past, present, and future yet to come, remind him of the good in the world. Ultimately, his fear of the same fate as his greedy partner, Jacob Marley, motivates a change of heart. Paul Moore dances the role of Scrooge. Jacob Marley is portrayed by Eric Walden. Canyon Movement Company dancers choreograph and perform the adult roles. Guest artist Kristi Long performs on stilts as the Ghost of Christmas Present, Laurel Combs performs on a lyra (aerial dance) as the ghost of Christmas Past, and Chelsea Taylor set the dance of Christmas yet to come on Canyon Movement Company with Cori Wall Mee as soloist.
