A Dickens of a Show

A Dickens of a Show-attachment0

The playbill of A Christmas Carol is usually a long one, filled with dozens of actors portraying everyone from Ebenezer Scrooge to the ghosts of all things past, present and future. But what if one man attempted to capture all 17 characters?

Actor David zum Brunnen will portray all of Dickens’ favorite holiday characters at the Tryon Fine Arts Center’s production of The Night Before Christmas Carol. This touring one-man show is funny, yet historically accurate. It was written by Dickens scholar Eliot Engel, who was recently inducted into the Royal Society of Arts in England.

The Night Before Christmas Carol will be performed Sunday, Dec. 16 at 3 p.m. at Tryon Fine Arts Center, 34 Melrose Ave., Tryon. $5 adults; $3 students. Info: www.tryonarts.org.
