The best ghost story ever (re)told.
What better way to kick off the holiday season than this charming new adaptation, written and directed by Script in Hand curator Mark Shanahan! Our next Script in Hand playreading — in-person at the Playhouse — is as delightful as sitting by a warm fireplace in the winter.
Based on the timeless tale by Charles Dickens, A Merry Little Christmas Carol will transport you back in time before social media, before TV and the movies, when we asked our imaginations to give spirits corporal form. We’ll bring to life the greatest miser of all time, Ebenezer Scrooge; the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future; and along the way, we might even find the true spirit of Christmas.
Script in Hand playreadings are intimate storytelling vehicles. No sets. No costumes. Just great actors bringing the story to life.
