A Christmas Carol- A Solo Performance
One Man - One Hour- A Full Season of Holiday Spirit(s)
This one-act, one-hour, solo stage adaptation of A Christmas Carol is enacted by Dickens himself, and is based on a condensed version of the novel that he used while on the second of his historic reading tours of the United States.
Through an unexpected turn of events, Charles Dickens' American Reading Tour in 1867 is off to a 'rough' start. However, Mr. Dickens -- always the consummate showman -- triumphantly proclaims that he will deliver what he has promised to present! By changes of voice, gesture and expression, he peoples the stage with a throng of characters from his classic Christmas tale and recreates, with improvised wit and charm, the familiar journey of Ebenezer Scrooge -- an embittered, lonely, old miser, who (with the help of three spirits) finds a second chance to become a generous, caring human being. What sets this fresh, new adaptation apart is its ability to rely on the power of the text -- shared simply, directly and intimately through great storytelling.
