A Dickens Tale is a 45-minute, fast-paced version of the literary classic, A Christmas Carol, and introduces audiences to the mean old man named Ebenezer Scrooge. Content in a life of misery, Scrooge is visited upon by a variety of entertaining and insightful ghostly visitors who encourage him to change his miserable life.
Changed by the visits, he transforms into a jolly, holiday loving man! The show features all the classic characters from old Scrooge, bumbling Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley, the three ghostly visitors, a hilarious beggar woman and more—all played by just two professional actors. Seen by audiences across America, A Dickens Tale, has long been a holiday tradition and is a heartwarming tale of friendship and generosity.
Bright Star Touring Theatre serves nearly a thousand audiences annually with a variety of programs and has routinely performed at the National Theatre and across the country. For more information about the company visit brightstartheatre.com.
