Back by popular demand – our special holiday performance!

Charles Dickens was no one-hit wonder when it came to holiday stories. Sure, there was one that got a trifle better known than the others, but the other four are no coal in the stocking, either — particularly The Chimes. It’s a tale that even Scrooge would love, full of downheartedness becoming warmheartedness and desperation turning to joy, complete with Dickensian social critiques. Nick Sandys portrays Dickens and his whole array of colorful characters as the story builds toward the New Year’s ringing of The Chimes.
