Back By Popular Demand, and now in its 6th big year, the festive interactive holiday sensation, A Christmas Carol, with a 1950’s Pennsylvania Dutch Twist, strolls joyously Into West Reading. Since its debut in 2014 this wondrous traveling show has played to standing room only and has delighted audiences of all ages.
This delightful event begins and ends at Curious on the Avenue, in their idyllic courtyard. When guests arrive, they will be treated to a wine tasting, provided by the award-winning Starving Artist Winery, and there is also complimentary cheese and crackers, holiday treats, and soft drinks, for those underage or non-drinkers.
The magical storytelling begins at Curious as the audience meets old Scrooge who is about to go on his rounds. The audience is transported back in time to the streets of 1950’s West Reading. Scrooge, himself plays the surly emcee of this delightfully fun and wonderfully homespun treatment of the Charles Dickens’ classic. Children and adults love it, giggling between the comedy and the dramatic twists, as they also get a mini-tour of historic West Reading.
A Christmas Carol on the Avenue is the brainchild of producer L J Fecho, owner and founder of Fecho Productions and Producing Artistic Director of Genesius Theatre. Fecho adapted the script from the book by Charles Dickens.
The interactive show has a cast of 7 actors, who play multiple roles and even audience members are called upon to portray various characters.This year’s production features, once again, Vicki Nunis, who plays the infamous Ebenezer Scrooge.
