Dickens' A Christmas Carol Times Two! A Benefit Performance
December 8 - December 10, 2012
The British ARE coming, both the favorite holiday story and traditional English Christmas Carols! Time travel back to 1876 for a bit of customized American history from a British perspective, a passionate dramatic reading, and some great piano music. "Victorian Englishman Thomas Hutchinson," portrayed by Al LePage, uses voice, gestures and more to create 18 characters from Scrooge to Tiny Tim, from Mrs. Cratchit to Marley's Ghost! Rev. Dr. Dianne Carpenter, minister and professional musician, dances her fingers across the keyboard playing holiday classics, plus a surprise historic tune about the Boston Tea Party. This memorable holiday experience is sure to bring laughter-and perhaps some tears!
Best suited for adults and children age 10 and up.
