A Cold, Cold Reading of
Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
Saturday, December 17th at 6 p.m.
Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol was first published on December 17, 1843. Forty-nine days later, it received its first stage adaptations, three of them to be exact, in London.
Since then the popular novel has received scores then hundreds and now thousands of readings and productions, yearly. But rarely is it presented in the brisk night air of winter…in a barn.
The Lantern Theatre presents A Cold, Cold Reading of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Now in its fifth year, it has become a cherished Christmas and family tradition. Beginning at 6 p.m. on the night of December 17th, 2015, six brave actors and a piano accompanist will take the stage in Gleeson’s barn to read Mr. Dickens’ masterwork. The reading will be accompanied by hot cocoa, cider and baked goods and will be followed by Christmas Carols sung by all. Dress warmly. It’s a barn.
Admission is $12. Children 12 and under: $8. Call (216) 401-5131.
