With one obvious exception, there is probably no tale that is so closely associated with the holiday season or more embodies what Christmas is all about than Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. This famous tale of a miser’s journey to self-redemption has been re-imagined countless times in novels, plays, musicals, movies and television. For me, it doesn’t truly feel like Christmas until I’ve watched some version of this story and heard that classic line from Tiny Tim, “God bless us, every one!”
While there are countless ways to watch the tale, one of the most entertaining has to be on the stage. Now in its 33rd year, Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theatre’s production is a great way to share this classic tale and all its magic with your children.
But this year? It’s a little different…
2020’s Virtual Christmas Carol
Fantasy Playhouse has tapped into its deep well of creativity to bring their classic tale to families during the pandemic. They’ll present the familiar Christmas story, with a shadowy new twist! Five actors, four spirits, three bell tolls, two possible endings, and one night that will change Ebenezer Scrooge forever!
Developed especially for a virtual family experience, Fantasy Playhouse presents a new adaptation of A Christmas Carol to be enjoyed right from your living room! Join Scrooge on a tour led by ghostly visitors as he revisits his past and learns the fate of his future. Through shadows, puppetry, and live foley sounds, a cast of five actors play multiple roles to inventively recreate the classic Dickens tale.
