TICKETS: $10 Noon; $25 7 PM
Yes, you know the story. It’s been told and retold. But this one man performance of The Night Before Christmas Carol will take you to the night in 1843 when Charles Dickens dreamed up his idea for the famous ghostly tale. As he composes his winter morality story, the audience glimpses into the life of the real Dickens, giving personal, social and historical context to the ethereal classic. Historically accurate and highly humorous, David zum Brunnen cleverly performs the role of Dickens and over 17 Dickensian characters.
