A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas – Paul Morella’s unique solo performance of Charles Dickens’ classic tale – returns for its eighth Holiday season at the Olney Theatre Center. The one-of-a-kind adaptation showcases the versatile Morella, who plays almost 50 characters in his time-honored retelling.
Morella remains faithful to Dickens’ prose, imagery, and characterizations while imagining the novella with a different twist each year.
According to Morella, “Every year my goal is to make the show ever more immersive and this year that includes extending the show environment further out into the lobby and even to the outside of the theatre. We are also playing with incorporating projections into the show.”
A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas runs now – December 31, 2017, in the Mulitz – Gudelsky Theatre Lab of the Olney Theatre Center. Running time for the show is two hours with one intermission. Tickets and other information is available at Olney Theatre. This show is intended for ages 10 and up and is recommended.
