Virtual Advent Calendar Day #22: Renee Johnson Reads Stave V of A Christmas Carol
Founding Member Renee Johnson wraps up our reading of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens with her fantastic performance of Stave V, when Scrooge wakes up on Christmas Day after being visited by the ghosts of Marley, Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet-to-Come.
Directed by Rebecca Zellar and Assistant-Directed by Connie Wurster.
Renee is honored to have the opportunity to bring her talent and experience to Mosaic Players. Renee is an actress, orator, and storyteller with over 30 years of performing on the academic and community stages of Lake County, IL. As a storyteller, Renee’s goal is to keep the African American History narrative alive by sharing stories that inspire and highlight the resilient spirit and journey of African Americans. She specializes in dramatic portrayals of historical African American women (Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Marian Anderson, Rosa Parks, Shirley Chisholm and Fannie Lou Hamer). Offstage, Renee is a resident of Antioch, IL, and Retired Army Veteran.
