It wouldn’t be a proper Christmas without seeing a performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
Huston (Charles Dickens) offers and loving and skillful reproduction of this famous tale. Using nothing more than his voice and gestures, Dickens/Huston plays more than two dozen characters. You’ll be spellbound. Moreover, as you can see by the image above, the talented actor bears an uncanny physical resemblance to Dickens.
As CBC Radio’s Alvina Ruprecht said in her review of this solo show a few years ago: “Absolutely fabulous …brings the work to life…magnificent performance!”
Ottawa’s wonderful folk trio Finest Kind will accompany the proceedings with some exquisitely harmonious 19th century British pub carols.
Be sure to see this. I’m sure it will become one of your Christmas traditions too.
A Christmas Carol plays at the NAC’s 4th Stage on December 20 and 21. Tickets can be bought online.
