Rodney Lizcano plays Old Joe, among other roles, in the DCPA Theatre Company’s 2015 staging of A Christmas Carol. Here, Lizcano gives us a little time-lapse peek into his  transformation using his cell phone. “I loves the make up,” Lizcano says as Old Joe. Old Joe one of the scavengers who steals away with Scrooge’s possessions in the “Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come” scene. Run time: 1 minute, 40 seconds.
