DICKENS BY CANDLELIGHT, having been performed since 1997 at locations such as the the Dr. Phillips Center on Lake Ivanhoe, the Dr. Phillips Victorian Mansion, the Whispering Heaven Tea Room, and in private homes is once again returning to the Lowndes Shakespeare Center this year. This production has become a holiday tradition in Central Florida as a three-person, interactive show providing theater-goers with a delightfully unique opportunity to experience A Christmas Carol the way it was intended to be told: as a Ghost Story.
The tale cleverly envelops the audience as the characters move through and around the guests who are seated at treat-laden tables. John DiDonna, Morgan Russell, and Monica Long Tamborello, three talented Orlando actors, portray all of the roles and artfully transform themselves from character to character and stave to stave.
The best way to witness visits from the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future is while enjoying homemade cookies and a pot of freshly-brewed hot tea. The cast and crew is often available before the show for a steaming cup of wassail and caroling.
