John Jake’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, stays true to this traditional holiday classic as written by Dickens while adding a unique feature.  Charles Dickens is introduced as narrator, stage hand, and actor moving seamlessly through the action on the stage. This feature adds a welcome quality to the production and reproduces an element of Dickens’s productions that he actually incorporated while he was “giving a reading." These readings were actually performances and he often went beyond narration when presenting his work.
