Enlightened Theatrics’ presentation of A Charles Dickens Christmas tells the story of the Christmas before the Carol.
A Charles Dickens Christmas is a highly original take on A Christmas Carol that gives a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the holiday classic.
Charles Dickens attempts to provide his publisher with a Christmas story that he promised to write but keeps coming up short. With the aid of his artistic muse, Dickens faces – and comes to terms with – his own troubled youth, learning the true meaning of Christmas and finding the inspiration for his immortal holiday classic.
This humorous and sentimental show is pure family entertainment. Each character in this small cast plays a large part in telling the alternate story of Charles Dickens. A Charles Dickens Christmas’ rich musical score is sure to put the holiday cheer into every member of the audience.
