CKHS Doctors Take the Stage in a Holiday Performance
Aside from performing every day in the hospital, two Crozer-Keystones physicians are now taking their talents to the big stage. David Hadley, M.D. and Robert Guilday, M.D. will be performing in Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” at the Hedgerow Theatre in Rose Valley, Pa. There are approximately 30 performances running between December 6 and 24.
This will be the 20th year the Hedgerow has offered this performance. Each cast consists of professional actors, volunteer adults and children. Hadley and his children have been involved in many other shows at the Hedgerow for the past three years. This will be their first year on stage.
“They enticed me to join them in the production and it is a treat for me to be on stage with them,” says Hadley, who specializes in obstetrics and gynecology at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. “We consider the performance to be our Christmas gift to the audience.”
Guilday, who specializes in general surgery at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, has been involved with the Hedgerow Theatre for several years. He will be joined by his wife and two of his children in this year’s performance. Hadley and Guilday will both be portraying the character of Bob Crachitt. However, Guilday will play several roles at the December 22 performance, including the ghost of Marley, Scrooge’s former business partner.
The Hedgerow Theatre is located at 146 West Rose Valley Road in Wallingford, Pa. To buy tickets for “A Christmas Carol,” or to view show dates and times, visit http://www.hedgerowtheatre.org/.
