A Classic Dickens Christmas Carol!

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 Al LePage turns in a breathtaking performance as every character in the script. Staged at the historic Omni Parker House Hotel—where Dickens himself reportedly once recited the classic piece—this production is seasoned with LePage’s historical asides about that snowy 1867 performance. Proving he’s no Scrooge, Grinch, or even Heat Miser, LePage presents a gift to one lucky audience member during each of his annual performances, and everyone can gather for warm cider and mince tarts after the show as well.

Customer Reviews

This was a wonderful performance by a true master storyteller!! Al LePage interspersed his reading of A Christmas Carol with comical anecdotes, interacting with the audience and prize giveaways. I had no idea until the day of the performance that this was a charity fundraiser to benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank. That made my experience that much more special.
