A holiday classic
By Charles Dickens | Adapted by Preston Lane
Ebenezer Scrooge’s last chance is one night and three spirits. It’s a life-changing ride through past, present and future as he learns what it means to be human. Triad Stage brings Dickens’ classic story to life in a dazzling production brimming with bold acting, daring design and spine-tingling special effects. Returning for the 5th year to The Hanesbrands Theatre, A Christmas Carol is a ghostly tale of Yuletide cheer, gracious redemption and heart-warming hope for the whole family.
“A marvelous retelling of a familiar tale.”
Preston Lane’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is told by beggar children in the 1860s. “I think having the story told through the children makes the audience see the larger story, to see the society Dickens lived in. It’s not just the story of how one man changes to become more generous and open; it’s how we all can experience that same change,” said Aidan Armstrong, a seventh-grader at Blessed Sacrament School in Burlington.
