Tim, Jake and Koady from The East Pointers are joined by a host of festive friends for the classic story of 19th-century penury, midnight spectres, memories of boyhood loneliness, rollicking parties, glowing descriptions of grocery stores, love, regret and redemption and one memorable ‘bah-humbug’. Expect lots of laughs, stumbling and stutters over a Victorian vocabulary as this cast of characters approach their lines for the first time in a seated table-read with musical interludes – sure to become a Christmas tradition.
And for the live audience – Christmas sweaters are encouraged for adults, Christmas PJs for the kids (or vice-versa) – either way, cozy up in the Confed Centre Playhouse and get into the Christmas spirit at Fezziwig’s party, play the role of the ghosts beyond the windows, and sing carols with the gang as we try to conjure up a white Christmas for 2021.
You, Dickens and this mis-cast of characters?
It’s a Christmas miracle!
