Come celebrate the season with this unique retelling of a holiday classic, glimpsed through the lens of Old New York. John Kevin Jones brings A Christmas Carol’s ghosts, graveyards, greed, and redemption to life in the manner of Charles Dickens himself. Jones’ performance is “… like an entire theatre company … under one hat” (as historian Thomas Carlyle remarked after attending one of Dickens’ famed public readings). Perfect for families.
The performance begins at 7:00 p.m., to be followed by plenty of mirth and merrymaking.
