Walking The Dog Theater Presents, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol

christmas-carol-2017-3_orig
Walking the dog theater Co., presents Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Now a tradition for 13 years with WTD, the performance of this timeless story continues its evolution.

The theater’s Executive Artistic Director David Anderson, who performs the piece solo (moving fluidly from character to character) says of the project, “A Christmas Carol has become an annual tradition in many communities, and it is the best way I know to become inspired by the season.”

Through drama and masterful storytelling, Anderson performs the story exactly as Dickens wrote it, giving the audience not only the dialogue but the descriptive passages as well. Anderson’s rendition, directed by Ted Pugh, is a modern revival of Dickens’ own manner of storytelling. Dickens gave performances drawn from A Christmas Carol and The Pickwick Papers throughout the Northeastern United States, from his arrival in Boston in mid-November, 1867 to his return to England in April 1868.
