Originally written in 1843, “A Christmas Carol”, the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, is a popular and timeless story of transformation and love set in Victorian England. This production is delivered in period costume by experienced “readers” who have been successfully delivering this message for over 20 years. This was originally co- produced with the CBC and presented throughout Simcoe County and York Region.
Written in five “staves” or chapters, the individual readers have an opportunity to deliver this ghostly tale with humour, wit, and their own personal touch. The Principal Readers are two veterans of this production, Laurie Lang, Past President of the Literacy Council of Simcoe County and Rob Murdock, the Director of Adult Programs-Collier United Church . They will be supplemented by three community members who have an opportunity to “let their creative juices flow”.
This production will take place over approximately 2 hours with an Intermission and a chance to sample some Christmas Goodies! We will finish the evening with a rousing chorus of two or three well-known Carols to put us in the festive mood for this holy season.
