A Christmas Carol, a Ghost Story of Christmas, is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London by Chapman & Hall in 1843. Dickens toured the US in the 1860s performing a one man telling of A Christmas Carol.
Back by popular demand .... Scrooge, Tiny Tim, the trio of Christmas ghosts, and the story of what happens when a bitter old man is given one last chance at redemption, are as well-known as any of Dickens’ characters. They’ve been portrayed in films and on TV around the world and now you can meet them all, live on stage in Spotlighters’ captivating, one-man adaptation.
Using only Dickens’ inimitable language, Phil Gallagher’s performance will thrill and chill audiences of all ages. With minimal props and costume, Gallagher portrays all these much-loved characters and breathes new life into a story that is as moving, relevant, and redemptive as it was when first written over 170 years ago.
