Morris-Jumel Mansion is proud to partner with performers, Jeffries Thaiss and Eric Scott Anthony, to present a fast-paced, imaginative adaptation of Charles Dickens' timeless holiday classic! Suitable for all ages, this two-man performance merges Dickens' brilliant original text with both traditional and unexpected Christmas music, as well as sound effects.

Actor, Jeffries Thaiss, performs all of the roles - Scrooge, Tiny Tim, the Ghost of Marley, and all your other favorite characters - just as Dickens, himself, performed it in 1853! Broadway veteran, actor Eric Scott Anthony accompanies all the action with traditional Christmas carols along with Victorian Era sound effects. The elegant stage is the festively decorated Main Hall of the Morris-Jumel Mansion! The talented, and versatile performers will turn back time, sweeping you into the 19th holiday season, in the intimate setting of Manhattan’s oldest residence.

Light refreshments will be served in the French Parlor. 75 minutes; no intermission.

Celebrate the holiday season with this quirky and one-of-a-kind exhibition.

This event is free and open to the public.

The 37th Annual Wreath Interpretations Exhibition is on display in the Arsenal Gallery on weekdays from December 5, 2019 through January 2, 2020. The gallery is closed on holidays (Christmas Day and New Year's Day).

Please note: this event has been cancelled.

Please join NYC Parks and Harlem Needle Arts to welcome We the People | Disrupting Silence, a newly-installed temporary public art exhibition in Colonel Charles Young Triangle.

Harlem Needle Arts presents artworks that are accessible to the African diasporic community and people of color, reflect social and political concerns, share histories of our existence, represent unique artistic expressions, and introduce audiences to the legacy of textile arts. We the People | Disrupting Silence is an extended use of the natural landscape of the park and challenges artists to broaden their scope and present works that will directly engage the community. It speaks to the organic nature in which people of the African Diaspora build consciousness of self/identity through textile rituals and ceremonies. The creative process of textile forms a community bond that dates back centuries and plays a significant role in how we decipher our contemporary lives.

We the People | Disrupting Silence is made possible in part with funding and support from the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corporation, LMCC, New York State Council on the Arts, New York City Department Of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council, Harlem Community Development Corporation, Council Member Bill Perkins, and Marcus Garvey Park Alliance.

The elegant stage is the festively decorated Main Hall of the Morris-Jumel Mansion! The talented, and versatile performers will sweep you into the holiday season, and the 19th Century, all presented in the intimate setting of Manhattan’s oldest residence.
