The Play That Changed Christmas

Come and enjoy A Christmas Carol this Dickens of a Christmas weekend!

 

by Kristine Worthington - November 29, 2016

This weekend in Wellsboro we will be enjoying the Dickens of a Christmas festival which will include live performances of “A Christmas Carol” presented by Hamilton-Gibson Productions. Join us in this traditional retelling of this Dickens’ heart touching story the whole family will enjoy. Ebenezer Scrooge, the unforgettable Christmas spirits and the endearing Cratchit family are prepared to open your heart and mind to the true spirit of Christmas.

There are several opportunities to view this Dickens’ classic holiday ghost story:
____
Saturday, December 3rd
The Coolidge Theatre, Deane Center, held at 10:30am, 1:30pm and 3:30pm

The Warehouse Theatre, 3 Central Ave, held at 11am, 1pm and 4pm

All Saturday performances tickets are $18.

____

For reservations, call Hamilton-Gibson Productions at 570-724-2079 or email hamgib@gmail.com.

Each production has its own unique qualities. Performances at the Warehouse Theatre are presented in the traditional proscenium style and at the Coolidge Theatre the audience will be on two sides of the stage. The script used by both casts is tightly aligned to the original story written and published by Charles Dickens in 1843. This music infused tale captures the magic of Christmas in a way that has impacted generations since its first release.

With these intimate small stage performances you will be up-close to the spirit of Jacob Marley, Scrooge’s dead business partner. Not-to-mention, the other clever spirits who guide Scrooge through his journey of redemption. A Christmas Carol is more than a ghost story. There are laughs, too. The huge, jolly figure of the ghost of Christmas present (with is infectious laugh) is sure to bring a smile to every face. Also the story gives us an intimate look into the love-filled lives of the Cratchit family.

Come and enjoy one of the best Christmas stories of all time and join the cast in the final line of the play, “God bless us everyone.”
