A Dickens of an Evening! A Christmas Carol!
November 16, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$5 – $25
A Dickens of an Evening brings the community in ahead of Christmas for an evening of entertainment, inspiration and learning. It speaks to issues of social justice and peace, bringing together the injustices of Dickensian England and those of our day. It’s a cautionary tale and it’s an opportunity to support a local organisation doing peacemaking in zones of conflict around the world – and at a time of year when we are marking the birth of the Prince of Peace.
English actor, Jeffrey Cottam, as Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens’ “A CHRISTMAS CAROL”
The original music for this performance has been created by award-winning Canadian composer, musician and musical engineer Bruce Ley who has written over 1,000 hours of musical score for television and movies.
All proceeds go to Partera!
