Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol Dramatic Reading

December 16, 2023 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 pm EST


Join Jared Reed in our third annual candlelit reading of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol with original music by Drew Petersen. Originally produced by Curio Theatre Company in West Philadelphia, Jared has crafted the piece from the reading version enacted by Dickens himself.

From the Broad Street Review By Mark Cofta for the 2018 Production at Hedgerow Theatre

A Christmas Carol is the most produced show in the nation, with at least 40 professional productions this year, according to American Theatre magazine. Most are large-cast celebrations featuring cheery spectacle and familiar carols, including Hedgerow’s, the yearly Walnut Street Theatre musical version, and McCarter Theatre Company’s annual extravaganza.

However, solo performances exist. Patrick Stewart has a nice one, available on DVD. But for a live performance in an intimate theater, Reed’s can’t be beat.
