Charles Dickens’
A Christmas Carol

History

Christmas Carol Poster.png

In 1849 Victorian England, Charles Dickens decided the best way to reach his audience with his "Carol philosophy" was by public readings. During Christmas in 1852 Dickens gave a reading in the Birmingham Town Hall to the Industrial and Literary Institute; the performance was a great success. Thereafter, he read the tale in an abbreviated version 127 times, until 1870 (the year of his death), when it provided the material for his farewell performance.

The novella was adapted for the stage almost immediately. Three productions opened on 5 February 1844, with one by Edward Stirling sanctioned by Dickens and running for more than 40 nights. By the close of February 1844 eight rival A Christmas Carol theatrical productions were playing in London.  The story has been adapted for film and television more than any of Dickens's other works. In 1901 it was produced as Scrooge, or, Marley's Ghost, a silent black-and-white British film; it was one of the first known adaptations of a Dickens work on film, although is now largely lost.  The story was adapted in 1923 for BBC radio. The story has been adapted to other media, including opera, ballet, a Broadway musical, animation, and a BBC mime production starring Marcel Marceau.

The performance of A Christmas Carol in the tradition of Charles Dickens Reader’s Theatre allows the audience to experience this Classic Tale as the author presented it himself.

What Is Reader’s Theatre?

Reader’s Theatre is a dramatic reading with 3 Actors performing the roles of the characters in the book using inventive small costume changes. In a time of technology disconnection, the art of Reader’s Theatre allows audiences to be transported back to a time of honest and authentic connection.
