A Christmas Carol with Gerald Dickens

In Charles Dickens’s timeless Yuletide ghost story, an inveterate miser discovers there is more to the holiday season than making up words such as “humbug.” It’s Christmas Eve, and Ebenezer Scrooge thinks his sole concession to the spirit of generosity—grudgingly giving his long-suffering clerk Bob Cratchit tomorrow off with pay—will be the day’s only unpleasant event. But that’s before the shade of his deceased partner, Jacob Marley, drops by wearing a preview of the chains Scrooge himself has forged through a lifetime of greed. Three other spirits soon follow and whisk Scrooge on a journey through time, where he reflects on a love lost with the Ghost of Christmas Past, peeks in on the present-day poverty—and good cheer—of the Cratchit house with the Ghost of Christmas Present, and quakes before the horror of dying alone and unloved with the Ghost of Christmas Future. Like most high-school calculus tests, it all ends up being a dream, giving Scrooge one last chance to redeem himself and save Tiny Tim.

A Christmas Carol was first published in 1843 to instant critical acclaim and has since been adapted into hundreds of versions that include musicals, modernized retellings, parodies, and even steampunk reimaginings. In this version, actor and great-great-grandson of Charles Dickens, Gerald Dickens, embodies all 26 characters in the script. Through shifts in mannerisms, accents, and facial expressions, he pays homage to the first public reading of the novel, which was performed solely by Dickens himself. Show-goers can also interact with him after the performance, when he’ll be on-hand to sign autographs in Charles Dickens’ great-great-grandson’s penmanship.

Customer Reviews

The performance was at the Byers Choice display and factory floor. There was such an atmosphere of Christmas. The performance by Gerald Charles Dickens (great, great, grandson of Charles Dickens) was fabulous. It was a one man show and worth more than the ticket price. I would go again next year. I highly recommend it to people of all ages.
