A Pageant by Charles Dickens, adpated by John Mortimer
“And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God Bless Us, Every One!”
Dramatized with wit and flair in a version first performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1994, this adaptation of the ageless story beautifully captures Dickens’ ironic point of view while creating a panoramic view of Victorian London. All of the beloved characters are in place. Ebenezer Scrooge and the ghost of his former partner, Marley; Bob Cratchit and his loving Tiny Tim; the Fezziwigs; and, of course, those vaporous spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. Wonderful family entertainment filled with laughter, tears, and beloved seasonal music. An amazing opportunity to introduce young members of the family to one of the English-speaking world’s great authors, and to the magic of live theatre!
