CHARLES DICKENS PRESENTS A CHRISTMAS CAROL
About the show…
“Get set for a one-on-one encounter with Charles Dickens in the person of actor / storyteller, Mike Randall” - WPIG 95.7 FM Up Close & Personal by Nicholas Pircio. While A Christmas Carol is a renowned classic, many people are not familiar with this version.
Charles Dickens Presents A Christmas Carol is an opportunity to see this holiday story as condensed by Dickens himself, for his stage “readings”. In 1868 Dickens began touring and presenting the classic. Highly anticipated performances in the United States drew crowds of 3,000 people per night.
Dickens biographer Edgar Johnson on the public readings: “It was more than a reading; it was an extraordinary exhibition of acting …without a single prop or bit of costume, by changes of voice, by gesture, by vocal expression, Dickens peopled his stage with a throng of characters.”
“A delightful ‘Carol’ – Randall as Dickens brings classic story to life…Randall delivered an inspired and inspiring performance.” – by Kristy Kibler, Warsaw County Courier
