Description

TAKE A RIDE BACK IN TIME AS THIS DELIGHTFUL INTERACTIVE FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT OF CHARLES DICKENS’ FAMOUS CLASSIC“A CHRISTMAS CAROL” UNFOLDS WITH A PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH TWIST WITHIN THE HOLIDAY GLOW OF CHARMING WEST READING.

Back By Popular Demand and NOW in it’s 4th Big Year, the interactive holiday sensation, A Christmas Carol, with a Pennsylvania Dutch Twist, rolls Into West Reading, once again, sponsored by the L.O.V.E. Team of West Reading. It is now called, A CHRISTMAS CAROL ON THE COACH! Since it’s debut in 2014 this wondrous traveling show has played to standing room only and has delighted audiences of all ages. 2017’s production is getting some spiffy new changes, in attempt to keep this very special roving theatrical Christmas presentation fresh and unique from year-to-year. In the past, we have used a motorized replica of a Trolley to cart the audience from venue-to-venue. Due to audience comments, in regard to comfort, and difficulty of entering and exiting the Trolley, we made the decision to use a very comfy 36 passenger coach/bus, which will create a futuristic way to transport our audiences, as they take this Christmas Carol journey.

The other major change is that the entire event will now evolve only in West Reading. The wine tasting, now provided by the award-winning STARVING ARTIST WINERY, will take place in the charming West Reading shop, CURIOUS, 605 Penn Avenue, which is where the Christmas Carol event departs and ends for each performance. The audience boards the Coach and is transported back in time to the streets of Olde West Reading Towne. Scrooge himself plays the surly emcee of this delightfully fun and wonderfully homespun treatment of the Charles Dickens’ classic. With a heart locked up tighter than a cash box, Scrooge, encounters the visits of four spirits at various, West Reading businesses, for the chance to open up his heart and relish in the joys of his fellow man. Children and adults love it, giggling between the comedy and the dramatic twists, as they also get a mini-tour of historic West Reading and Wyomissing.

Ebenezer Scrooge begins to spin the time-honored tale for the audience and then the Coach completes several stops at various West Reading businesses to meet other characters and further the storyline. At each participating business, guests will be offered complimentary snacks or non-alcoholic drinks. As old Scrooge begins to find some faith and trust in his fellow man and is reminded what a blessing each day of life is, the Christmas Coach wends its way back to CURIOUS as the audience, Scrooge, and Cratchit, sing Christmas carols in the spirit of the very special holiday. When the audience returns to the winery, they are welcomed back into CURIOUS to shop and purchase wine from Starving Artist Winery.
