Description: Meet the ghost of Charles Dickens. He's not what you expect. In fact, he's a bit of a clown. Mr. Dickens is spending the festive season at Canal Park Playhouse, bringing the magical story of Ebenezer Scrooge's journey from dour skinflint to a compassionate embodiment of the holiday spirit to life in the intimate landmark theater. Based on the Dickens' own material from his historic reading tours throughout the U.S., this heart-warming classic tale is given new life with Victorian pratfalls and classic physical comedy, imbued with a little bit of holiday magic. Recommended for ages 7 and older. A pre fixe, pre- or post-show brunch at the theater's Waffle Iron Cafe is available on Saturdays for an additional $6.95 in advance or $8.95 at the door.
