“Thanks for such a wonderful performance! Our patrons are still talking about it.” – Middletown Free Library
Today, I offer two different Dickens programs: a performance of the story, and an educational talk about the history behind it.
Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
Scrooge, Marley, and an entire Victorian village come to life, just in time for the holidays. This amazing one-man show has become an annual tradition for a number of schools, civic organizations, and even private Christmas parties. Catch the Christmas Spirits!
Bah, Humbug: Inside a Dickens Classic
Why did Dickens write A Christmas Carol? What can it tell us about his world? How has it changed the way we celebrate Christmas today? And what is a humbug, anyway? This is an interpretive lecture, exploring the story behind a classic.
“Bah, Humbug” was developed with support from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Jump Street.
I’ll be happy to combine both shows for a live double-feature. Offer your guests a few old-fashioned snacks during the intermission, for a complete Victorian evening that’ll be hard to forget!
