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.”

There is no other performer who looks and sounds so much like Elton John, nor any tribute act that provides the experience of being at an actual Elton John concert, the way Gerald Brann and Yellow Brick Road does.
