Colquitt- A cast of professional New York actors will perform "A Southern Christmas Carol."

The play still tells the story of the miserly Scrooge, but this time he owns a cotton company and the story is set in South Georgia during the Depression.

Albany native Morgan Carson returns home to portray the Ghost of Christmas Past.

"I get to be home for Christmas and I've seen Swamp Gravy before, and I think Rob sort of stole my idea because I would have done the same thing and made this into professional theatre. It's just a great, great idea," says Carson.

The play opens Tuesday night at 7:30 at the Cotton Hall in Colquitt and will run through December 21st.
