Local Actress Back for Second Year of ACT’s ‘Christmas Carol’

Got a note earlier today from the Brummel household in Chimacum (they recently moved from Hansville), letting me know that our own Amelia Rose Brummel will be back for a second year in A Contemporary Theatre ‘s holiday tradition (they’ve been doing it since 1976, fer goodness sake), "A Christmas Carol ."

The Charles Dickens classic, adapted by Gregory A. Falls and directed by Kurt Beattie, runs Nov. 28 through Dec. 27 at the theater, 700 Union St. in Seattle. Amelia will play Belinda Cratchit and Lil Fezziwig.

Last fall, the 12-year-old Amelia (well, she was 11 then) landed the understudy job for Red Riding Hood in the 5th Avenue Theatre’s production of "Into the Woods," then earned a spot in the "Christmas Carol" cast. She first caught our eye a little earlier as Little Sally in BPA’s production of "Urinetown: The Musical."

So, if you needed an excuse to venture across the roiling waters of Puget Sound to see one of Seattle’s holiday entertainment stalwarts, here’s a local for you to go cheer on.

More later … — MM
