A Christmas Carol
The beloved Simpich version of Dickens’ Holiday classic returns for a limited engagement in 2018.
From the pen of Charles Dickens and the puppetry of David Simpich, the Simpich Showcase Marionette Theatre is proud to present its revival of the holiday classic A Christmas Carol. This special presentation is designed in the intimate style of traditional European puppet theatre—but with an unusual twist! Simpich portrays Dickens himself on stage and the unforgettable creations of this literary master are brought to life as never before on the ends of marionette strings… The Ghost of Jacob Marley, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and Mr.Fezziwig and are just some of the more than twenty supporting players who live and breathe on stage as Dickens provides movement and vivid voice characterizations. The true Spirit of the Holiday Season is presented through the colors and language of a ghostly Victorian Christmas… and the carefully unfolded telling of the redemption of Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge.
