From the Director
A Christmas Carol
by John Mortimer
Adapted from the story by Charles Dickens
A well-loved Christmas story the whole family will enjoy
“Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many—not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”—Charles Dickens
Rekindle your imagination as Elements Theatre Company presents A Christmas Carol, an imaginative retelling in an enhanced Readers Theatre style with live music, sound effects and multimedia in an intimate setting, directed by Christopher Kanaga. During this season of giving, this classic story reminds us that even in the midst of a world filled with acrimony, we can hold fast to our hope for change.
“One might think that there’s nothing left to discover in A Christmas Carol, but experiencing it in a stripped-down, minimalist production allows the focus to shift to the dialogue and the emotions expressed by the author’s choice of words. If Ebenezer Scrooge is Everyman, then his journey is our journey, his lessons are our lessons, and his redemption is our redemption. This idea may have hit home before, but Elements Theatre Company’s rendition felt different, more compelling, and more transforming.”
