A CHRISTMAS CAROL DICKENS BY DICKENS!
Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 2PM
Strand Center for the Arts
Lakewood, NJ
A DICKENS CHRISTMAS CAROL by DICKENS!
“A Christmas Carol’ as you have never experienced it before!
Join us as we welcome Gerald Dickens, the great, great grandson of Charles Dickens, for his one-man show, a theatrical performance of A Christmas Carol inspired by Charles’ own energetic readings of the 1860s.
Gerald Dickens conjures A Christmas Carol with just a table, wing chair, and hat rack accompanying him on stage. As he leaps, sobs, and laughs, 26 characters of the classic tale are brought vividly to life. Gerald has created different postures and voices for each character, achieving this so adeptly that the audience has no doubt about “who is who,” so to speak.
The Strand is happy to welcome Gerald to a theater his great, great grandfather would be comfortable in and, hopefully, start a new tradition with this one of a kind “A Christmas Carol.”
