"Martindale focuses almost entirely on Dickens's florid language and hypnotic imagery. She and her two costars tell the story with candor and simplicity, much as your extroverted friends might at their annual holiday party."
Fury Theatre presents this uniquely intimate and immersive presentation of Dickens’ holiday classic. Adapted directly from the novel by Rachel Martindale, this version is a time traveling experience including the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of a Victorian Christmas.
Come and enjoy the decorations, the Victorian Carols, spiced cider and cookies before the show (all included with the admission ticket). Then join Scrooge as he is led by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future on a journey to examine his life and learn that it's never too late to change.
Presented in Dickens’ own rich language by three actors portraying all of the characters with the help of a few simple costume changes -- and some special effects -- this show is 80 minutes without intermission.
Let us ignite your Holiday Spirit with ours!
Featuring performances by James Sparling as Ebenezer Scrooge and Joe Kloehn and Rachel Martindale as the Narrators.
