Aurora Theatre celebrates the season with Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, November 23 – December 22

One-man rendition of the heartwarming classic Christmas tale returns to Lawrenceville for 12th consecutive year

The classic story of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol will return to the Aurora Theatrestage, November 23-December 22, for a 12th successive year! Audiences can follow the well-known, heartwarming tale of the curmudgeon Ebenezer Scrooge as he journeys through the past, present, and future of Christmas, ultimately embodying the spirit of the season!

 

“Anthony Rodriguez epitomizes the essence of the season through his relatable, true-to-form personifications of each character that get richer and more personal every year,” said Tony Brown, the show’s adapter and director. “Both new and returning guests can expect to be amazed by his dexterity in navigating a diversity of characters, all in an intimate setting reminiscent of a cozy living room. We look forward to uniting our audiences from all walks of life with this timely reminder of what truly matters in our world.”

In this one-of-a-kind one-man version of A Christmas Carol, audiences will be transported from Aurora Theatre’s Studio stage to a cold, dark Christmas Eve in London in the late 1880s. There, the troubled and resentful Scrooge – hardened by his bitter heart – is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future, each with a specific story and lesson to share. These visits ultimately force Scrooge to make certain choices about his life, including whether or not to embrace the joy of Christmas. Anthony Rodriguez portrays the classic characters of Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley, and all three ghosts in an impressively personal and uplifting way. Theatergoers of all ages are sure to be impressed by this feel-good holiday favorite, once again featuring the work of multiple Suzi Award-winning set designers Isabel and Moriah Curley-Clay and costumes design by Alan Yeong.
