A Christmas Carol at Dock Street Theatre

Charleston Stage has done it again. Their adaptation of A Christmas Carol is brimming with originality and Christmas cheer thanks to a fabulous musical score composed by Charleston Stage’s Director of Music Education Amanda Wansa. Songs such as “Pay No Attention To Mister Scrooge” and “Spread a Little Christmas Cheer” breathe new life into the classic Dickensian tale, with the help of a multi-talented 33-member cast and a little directorial magic from Marybeth Clark.

Adapted for Charleston Stage by the company’s founder, Julian Wiles, A Christmas Carol stays true to the original storyline while presenting the tale of fiction’s most well known miser from a fresh perspective. As Scrooge (Nat Jones) travels through his past, present, and future, the changes in his heart are seen through the opinions of those around him. Parts of the play are decidedly tongue-in-cheek, with Tiny Tim (Luke Shaw) quoting several of Dickens’ other works, including the well-known “Please sir, can I have some more?” from Oliver Twist.

And of course, we can’t forget to mention the intricate set, complete with several different backdrops and lots of spooky fog. Complemented by a phenomenal cast performance, A Christmas Carol is the perfect way to ring in the holiday season with your loved ones.

Performances run through the 18th. Be sure to call the box office today to get your ticket!
