A CHRISTMAS CAROL COMEDY

An irreverant love note to Charles' Dickens' classic tale.

Part Christmas Carol, part pantomime, a twist of 39 Steps and a whole lot of fun nonsense; this 2 Man show of A CHRISTMAS CAROL COMEDY will be a new telling even if you have already seen the movies 50 times… Starring Harrison Thomas as Scrooge & Sean Sullivan as everybody else. Written by Katie Leamen and directed by Lynne Griffin.  Kick-start your Christmas December 5-7th at the Waterford Old Town Hall.  Tickets are $25 and available online at ticketscene.ca/oth, or in person at the box office. 

To save his beloved holiday from the Puritans who sought to squash it, Charles Dickens wrote a silly Christmas ghost story to resurrect the Ghost of Christmases Past. Now, in an age when Christmas shopping begins in September and the season is more full of stress and spending than it is of glad tidings, A CHRISTMAS CAROL COMEDY is sure to resuscitate your good humour and goodwill to all men – but especially to the two on stage tackling all of Dickens’ beloved characters. Mixing shades of Monty Python with the Shades of Past, Present and Future, this comedy is just the ticket for anyone aged 5 to 95 keen to kick-start their festive fun.

Directed by renowned actress and director Lynne Griffin (Santa Baby 1 & 2 as Mrs. Claus; Murdoch Mysteries, Season 8; upcoming Harper Regan at Canadian Stage), Harrison Thomas (Hedda Gabler, Desiderata Collective; Shrew, Red1 Theatre Collective; The Deliverance of Juliet and her Romeo, Leroy Street Theatre), and Sean Sullivan (upcoming God and Country, feature film by Ken Finkleman; A Midsummer Nightmare, Leroy Street Theatre; Potosi, “Best New Play” Toronto Fringe Festival) lead the laughs. Written by Katie Leamen (writer: Alice in Wonderland: A Tale with No Porpoise, No Porpoise Productions; as performer No Sex Please, We’re British! Upper Canada Playhouse). Set design by Jake Gow (Technical director, Ballet Jorgen; Juilliard School of Performing Arts). Stage Managed by Lindsay Sippel Eitzen (as performer: Weird, Theatre Arcturus; Alice in Wonderland: A Tale with No Porpoise, No Porpoise Productions).

“Happy opening to all and to all a good night..!!! Saw the dress reh. last night ...
