About this event

Shasta Arts Counciland New Frontier Theatre Company invite you to virtually attend the highly acclaimed one-man show: “Scrooge: An Evening with Charles Dickens,” performed by its Artistic Director, Bennett Gale.

Our performance follows in the tradition set by Mr. Dickens himself, where he would often act out his own stories, playing all the characters.  

Mr. Gale has performed this original adaptation of ‘The Christmas Carol’ to thousands of spectators throughout Northern California, including the Riverfront Playhouse and Shasta Arts Council.

This highly animated and compelling performance provides the opportunity to hear the original language in its humor and drama in a way that the standard movie or play does not provide.  The performance is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, with an optional Q & A for another 20 minutes.

We are offering two livestream performances: Friday, December 10 and Saturday, December 11 at 7:30pm, both will be followed by an optional Question and Answer period with Mr. Gale as Charles Dickens. The Q&A session will be held via Zoom.
