If you thought ghost stories were only for Halloween, you’d be mistaken! Perhaps the most popular ghost story of all time is a tale of three spirits and how they change the life of Ebenezer Scrooge.
Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” has been told and reinterpreted hundreds of times over the years, but none as unique as envisioned by the PBS featured group of performers known as Phantasmagoria.
“Celebrate the Season as Phantasmagoria presents its own unique adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday tale “A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story of Christmas” This critically acclaimed Victorian Performance Troupe will bring its signature tapestry of movement, dance, puppetry, projections, music and storytelling to the stage as one of the most famous Ghost Stories of all times comes alive! A true tale of the Past, Present and Future – with the glory of redemption! Dickens’ wonderful tableau will come to life with Phantasmagoria’s own unique aesthetic and performance style in a brand new adaptation of the classic work.
“It is one of the most relevant Ghost stories of the last few centuries, When it was first published in 1843 it took the world by storm, and today – 174 years later – it is still tradition for so many people.” – Phantasmagoria
“A Christmas Carol, A Ghost Story of Christmas” is written and directed by John DiDonna, co-directed by Seth Kubersky and Kevin G. Becker. Choreographed by Mila Makarova with fight direction by Bill Warriner, the show features music and atmosphere by Les Caulfield and Tod Kimbro.
