A CLASSIC DICKENS' CHRISTMAS CAROL!
OMNI Parker House Hotel
Boston, MA
Share this event:


Travel back in time to the Victorian-Era with Al LePage for a DRAMATIC READING PERFORMANCE!  He not only CREATES ALL 26 CHARACTERS using DICKENS' FULL HISTORIC SCRIPT, but also DOES IT IN THE SAME CITY the famed author first read it when he came to America in 1867!  It's at the HISTORIC OMNI PARKER HOUSE HOTEL, and THE ONLY BOSTON PERFORMANCE of the COMPLETE historic script, too!  

DICKENS' ACTING STYLE! Dickens simply used his voice, made facial expressions, gestured and moved his body to CREATE ALL THE CHARACTERS!  LePage will do the same -- accents and all -- plus sound effects, too!  From Scrooge to Tiny Tim, from Marley's Ghost to Mrs. Cratchit, there's howls and growls, bangs and bongs, a DANCE WITH A SONG, lively laughter and heartfelt tears.

BEFORE THE PERFORMANCE, PLAYFUL AND INTERACTIVE! LePage's love of improvisation not only means that he may engage you in conversation, but also involve you in other ways, too!  Since he likes to experiment and believes in seizing the moment, even he doesn't always know what's going to happen next. And for this event, he'll sprinkle a little history about Dickens when came to Boston to perform in 1867.  All this not only makes each performance UNIQUE, but also keeps them fresh and EXCITING, spontaneous and FULL OF SURPRISES, too!

MINCE TARTS, WARM SPICED CIDER, AND A SPECIAL GIFT! This performance will also include a cup of warm cider and Parker House mince tarts, plus at least one special gift will be given to some audience member during the performance, too!

ALL PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE GREATER BOSTON FOOD BANK, the largest hunger-relief organization in New England, working to help end hunger in eastern Massachusetts. This special event is being hosted at the Parker House Hotel and is fully sponsored by OMNI Hotels & Resorts, Parker House/Boston.
