Parson’s Nose Theater (PNT), the acclaimed classical comedic theater company, continues its 14th Season with Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” opening Saturday, December 21, 2013. Adapted by Artistic Director Lance Davis, this 75-minute performance is presented as a part of the theater’s “Pay What You Will” Readers’ Theater Series.

“I’ve tried to highlight the marvelous descriptions Dickens gives us,” says Davis. “We usually miss it in productions. That stuff we skipped over in high school, but now have time to savor. His description of Scrooge’s house, so lonely, as if it had gotten lost while playing hide and seek with all the other houses; of the bustling of the grocer’s shops, and the crisp snow-covered evening; all told with his genius, a celebration of the English language. He makes you feel like roasting chestnuts, right here in Pasadena.”

A Christmas Carol” at Parson’s Nose Theater performs 7 p.m. Saturday, December 21 and 3 p.m. Sunday, December 22. All performances are “Pay What You Will” and reservations may be made online at www.parsonsnose.com or by calling 626-403-7667. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, but advanced phone reservations are necessary. Limit 4 persons per reservation.
