Classical Theatre Company presents A Christmas Carol
The novella by Dickens, originally published in 1843, follows the familiar story of redemption of the stonehearted Ebenezer Scrooge. A visitation by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley triggers a series of journeys with the various spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future. These otherworldly voyages show Scrooge the errors of his life to date, instigating a remarkable turnaround in his worldview and actions going forward in life.
This new adaptation of this holiday classic promises to create a unique and visceral experience for its audiences. This new script is very strongly tied to the great and famous words that Dickens penned nearly 175 years ago. This new production is adapted by Classical Theatre Company executive artistic director John Johnston and resident company artist Matthew Keenan. They were drawn to this iconic piece of literature through various productions in which they were actors.
