A Christmas Carol
A production Charles Dickens would heartily approve -- heartwarming, fast-paced, entertaining and using only his original words!!!
Three amazing actors, two very long scarves, and one glowing candle join forces with the original words as written by Charles Dickens to bring his holiday classic to vibrant new life. You'll experience "A Christmas Carol" like you never have before in this unique, world premiere adaptation presented by Grove Theater Center at GTC Burbank.
Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, Marley's Ghost, Scrooge and the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future all make their appearance as the three actors guide us through the story sometimes as narrators, sometimes as storytellers, and sometimes as characters, but always using the actual words of Charles Dickens.
The show is great for ages 10 to 95 (it runs 80 minutes with no intermission).
"I wanted to get back to 'A Christmas Carol's' storytelling roots," says GTC Artistic Director Kevin Cochran who adapted the tale. "To give people a sense of what it must have been like to hear Charles Dickens present the story to an audience as he did many times; yet, also keep the excitement of Scrooge's interactions with Marley's Ghost and the Christmas Spirits."
The play is presented as a special program of Grove Theater Center's New Play Initiative. Previous New Play Initiative projects include "Eternal Equinox" (which also played Off-Broadway at 59e59 Theaters in NYC), "Blakeda Musical!" (LA Ovation Award for Best New Musical), "Straight Up with a Twist" (Ovation nomination for Best Solo Performance & 5 month run in NYC at The Players Theater), "R.R.R.E.D." (four LA Weekly nominations and a special event at the New York Musical Theater Workshop), "Bobby & Matt" (part of the 15th annual International Fringe Festival of New York City) and "Film Chinois" (Ovation Award for Best New Play).
