Parson’s Nose Theater Continues Their 2017-18 Season With

Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol

December 9-17, 2017

Saturdays at 8:00pm

Sundays at 3:00pm



Parson’s Nose Theater (PNT), the acclaimed classical comedic theater company, presents their annual reading of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, opening Saturday, December 9th. Adapted by Artistic Director, Lance Davis, this 90-minute performance is presented as a part of the theater’s Readers’ Theater Series.

“I’ve tried to highlight the marvelous descriptions Dickens gives us,” says Davis. “We usually miss it in productions. That stuff we skipped over in high school, but now have time to savor. His description of Scrooge’s house, so lonely, as if it had gotten lost while playing hide and seek with all the other houses; of the bustling of the grocer’s shops, and the crisp snow-covered evening; all told with his genius, a celebration of the English language. He makes you feel like roasting chestnuts, right here in Pasadena.”

The PNT adaptation of A Christmas Carol will combine narration of Dickens’ original text with performed dialogue by favorite Parson’s Nose Company Members. After the readings, audience members are invited to enjoy a glass of cheer with the PNT Company.
