ICHTHYS Theatre Productions is proud to announce A Dickens of a Time, an online production based on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, and adapted by Lorna Stratton. This production will be available on the ICHTHYS Theatre Productions YouTube channel and Facebook page on December 4th, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.
Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol has been famously re-adapted and shared in countless productions since its original publication in December 1843. Despite its age, the tale continues to resonate with each generation as the lessons learned in this cautionary tale have proven to be timeless. A Christmas Carol recounts the story of Ebenezer Scrooge (Bruce Farley), an elderly miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. After their visits, Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man. The story is narrated by Micheal Elwood, who plays the character of Charles Dickens. Eight other actors round out the cast.
Dealing with overarching themes of greed, generosity, forgiveness, and family, A Dickens of a Time will re-tell the classic story in the spirit of Christmas tradition.
