DICKENS TELLS A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum This December!
Mr. Dickens Tells a Christmas Carol recreates the famous performance tour by Charles Dickens in 1867 with his classic tale bringing the travails of Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim alive. Taken from the original script, actor Michael Muldoon plays Charles Dickens and tells the well-loved story in the beautifully decorated double parlors of the mansion meeting the different spirits and characters. A newspaper wrote of Dickens at the time, “He gave to every character a different voice, a different style, a different face.” We have endeavored to bring this spirit our adaptation in an historic period setting.
