Masks, acrobatics, humbug, and holiday cheer abound in this modern retelling of the Dickens holiday classic, written and directed by Helen Hayes Award nominee Matthew R. Wilson. When Pantalone Scrooge is visited by his old friend Dottore Marley, an unforgettable adventure of ghosts, yuletides, and omens sets the greedy old man on the rocky road to redemption. Dickens London comes alive in a new way with a Commedia twist and a fresh new script. A Commedia Christmas Carol is a treat for the whole family and a hilarious, heart-felt celebration of the holiday season.
