A Christmas Carol (one-actor adaptation by Greg Bodine)
by Classic Theatre of San Antonio

Dec. 01 - Dec. 18
Fridays-Sundays

Ray Seams, Kurt Wilkinson (photo via Classic Theatre)In 1867, Charles Dickens traveled to the United States to read his beloved Christmas classic to eager audiences in cities across the country. A Christmas Carol adapted by Greg Oliver Bodine is a reenactment of one of these famous readings and is based on the condensed version Dickens himself used on his reading tours. During the play, Dickens regretfully announces that he will be unable to read from his beloved classic due to his luggage being misplaced. All is not lost, however; Dickens delivers what he promised by performing from memory the magical story of Ebenezer Scrooge’s journey from miserliness to redemption with warmth and humor.

 

What makes The Classic Theatre’s production an unforgettable experience is the setting of the historic Maverick Carter House across from the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts in downtown San Antonio. Audiences will have the opportunity to tour the first floor of the magical Victorian-era house before the show to get a sense of what life was like when Charles Dickens traveled reading to audiences himself.

 

The cast for A Christmas Carol includes: 

Ray Seams as Charles Dickens 

Kurt Wilkinson as Charles Dickens

 

They will perform the role on alternating nights. 

 

A Christmas Carol will be directed by Omar Leos. 

 

Select performances of A Christmas Carol will also feature The Youth Orchestra of San Antonio (YOSA).
