Dustin Charles stars as Charles Dickens and all of the unforgettable characters from his 1843 novella, the holiday family classic, A Christmas Carol. This new adaptation by Greg Oliver Bodine finds Dickens on his 1867 American Reading Tour, but due to the inexplicable loss of his luggage, he regretfully announces that he will be unable to read from his beloved classic.
All is not lost however. Dickens delivers what he promised by performing from memory the magical story of Ebenezer Scrooge's journey from miserliness to redemption with warmth and humor. Join us for this wonderful holiday treat for one performance only on Sunday, December 14, 2014, at 2pm.
