ShakeCo: The Shakespeare Company presents a one-man-show of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."
Time & Location
About The Event
Charles Dickens wrote "A Christmas Carol" in 1843 as an attempt to stir the British public to an awareness of the poverty and hardships around them. Its tale of a miserly old man who learns the importance of generosity and "Christmas spirit" was an immediate success and has been in continual print to this day. It was first adapted to the stage within months of publication and is one of the most-filmed stories in cinematic history. Dickens himself took to reading the tale to audiences and "Carol" was the work he chose for his farewell performance, mere months before his death.
This production of "A Christmas Carol" is designed to recreate Dickens' own presentations and ShakoCo founder and MuCCC Artist Philip R. Frey will be performing the show (as Dickens) utilizing the same text Dickens used in his public readings.
ShakeCo: The Shakespeare Company of Greater Rochester has been performing in and around the Rochester area since 2000 and has produced thirty distinct shows (not even including various "ShakeCo Radio Theater" productions). Their thirty-first production, "The Country Life of Uncle Vanya" opens December 28th @ the MuCCC.
