A Commedia Christmas Carol




The Show:

With influences ranging from "Waiting for Guffman" to  'Scrooged", our adaptation of this classic finds the inhabitants of San Irreal attempting to mount their own stage production of the Dickens classic "A Christmas Carol." 

The show itself is done in Chicago dell'Arte's unique brand of Commedia, combining the classic style with a modern twist.  This highly physical show uses slapstick, puppets, and a little bit of holiday magic to create a 90 minute show appropriate for all ages. 

So bring your friends, bring your kids, bring your friend's kids, and bring your kid's friends (except that little freckle-faced boy Skippy McJohnson...he always smells vaguely of Dinty Moore stew)
