Part Christmas Carol, part pantomime, a twist of 39 Steps, and a whole lot of fun nonsense, No Porpoise Productions’ two-hander of A CHRISTMAS CAROL COMEDY is an irreverent love note to Charles Dickens’ classic tale. Kick-start your Christmas Nov 30 – Dec 23 at the Wychwood Theatre.
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 good tidings, A CHRISTMAS CAROL COMEDY is sure to revive your good humour and goodwill to all – especially to the two actors on stage tackling all of Dickens’ cherished characters. Mixing shades of Monty Python with the Ghosts of Past, Present and Future, this comedy is perfect for anyone aged 5 to 95 looking for a bit of festive fun.
Directed by renowned actress Lynne Griffin (Santa Baby 1 & 2 as Mrs. Claus; The Glass Menagerie, Island Productions BC; as director: Baby Redboots’ Revenge: North American/Central Europe Tour).
