ShakeCo will present a "Dickens Christmas Party", with songs, games and a reading of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol".
ShakeCo has been staging an annual production of A Christmas Carol since 2011. This year's production is designed to simulate a Christmas Eve party in the world of the book. In addition to Dickens himself, characters such as Bob Cratchit, the Fezziwigs and Scrooge, himself, will be on hand to engage their guests in pasttimes of the day, as well as relating Dickens' timeless story over the course of the show.
Free, 2 hours
The Shakespeare Company of Greater Rochester is a locally based small-scale production company devoted primarily to the performance of Shakespeare’s works throughout the Greater Rochester area. The Company put on its first production, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, in August of 2000 and produced nine shows over the next five years. Returning from an extended hiatus with 2010’s production of R.U.R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots), the "Young Audiences" program was re-launched later that year with Young Prince Hal. ShakeCo has also produced a series of ShakeCo Radio Theater live "old time radio" dramas. Their next production will be the anonymous Elizabethan play Arden of Feversham in October, 2019.
