A CHRISTMAS CAROL meets THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR meets NOISES OFF in this hilarious hit from Seattle.  A man walks into a small, midwestern theatre and asks for an audition. He is so naive that he is suspected of being a government informer for the National Endowment for the Arts. Everyone caters to the bewildered wannabe actor and he is given a role in the current production, A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Everything goes wrong and hilarity is piled upon hilarity.  (Samuel French, Inc. Catalog)

The ghost of Christmas Past, better known as "Third World Baby," (Les Jennings) in NEIU's production of Inspecting Carol, presents a piñata of hope to Scrooge (Vincent Villalobos). In the Soapbox Playhouse's rendition of A Christmas Carol we find NEIU's StageCenter theater's production of Inspecting Carol.  Clockwise: Martha(Lucy Rendler-Kaplan), Tiny Tim(Brandon Allen Ray), Mrs. Cratchit (Deb Kowalczyk), Cratchit (Paul Martin), Scrooge(Vincent Villalobos), the ghost of Christmas Present(Les Jennings), and Peter (Brandon Sifrar). Wayne Wellacre (Brandon Allen Ray) discusses his dream of becoming an actor with MJ(Lucy Rendler-Kaplan) in NEIU's production of Inspecting Carol.
