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.

Walking The Dog Theater Presents, William Shakespeare’s Richard II


Walking the dog theater Co., in partnership with Nikita Productions, is presenting William Shakespeare’s Richard II as part of their 21st anniversary celebration.

A story about identity.  Taking place during a dramatic shift in history when tradition, religion and royal lineage get disrupted, the modern age of ruling-by-might is birthed.  King Richard is a sovereign who plays at being King. Crowned at the age of 10, and surrounded by flatterers, he rules by ceremony and pillage, repeatedly claiming his righteousness as God’s anointed minister. His downfall comes when he crosses one line too many, and the consequences of his misrule and lack of self-knowledge finally come home to roost, resulting in the new order of King Henry IV.

Directed by Melania Levitsky, the play will feature live, original music and the following cast:
TAMIR
William Sanderson
Scott Mendelsohn
James Luse
Yuan-rong Liao
Carla Lewis
John Scott Legg
Simon Frishkoff
