Mr. Dickens’ Christmas Carol by Bo Wilson

November 28 – December 20, 2014

Directed by Gary Hopper

Rehearsals begin on October 20, 2014

Performance location: Grace Street Theatre

The music, joy, and poignant warmth of the season grace our stage in this, the greatest Christmas ghost story of all time. Just four actors play all the roles in our original adaptation, as Charles Dickens crafts the gripping tale of Ebenezer Scrooge facing Christmases past, present and future in a mystical journey of transformation and redemption.

Character Breakdown

  • Charles Dickens (M 35-40): A frustrated, brilliant author who creates, and then becomes, Ebenezer Scrooge, the flinty, sharp-tongued miser.
  • Spirit of the Past (M 50+): Casual yet courtly, kind, content, and accepting that no one ever listens to him.  Plays other characters.
  • Spirit of the Present (F 25-45): Alive only in this moment.  Compassionate, courageous, and almost unbearably honest. Plays other characters.
  • Spirit of the Future (M/F 30-50): Coolly patient, quietly wise, a bit mysterious. Knows what cannot yet be known. Plays other characters.
