Are You Scroogier than Scrooge?
October 31, 2013
We all have good days and bad days, but especially during the holidays when cheer and good will towards all are rather abundant. One can seem particularly scroogey with a few bah-hum bugs. Thankfully, one not-so-cheerful day doesn’t allot us a late-night appointment with three timely ghosts. But a lifetime of stinginess can bring us a whole lot more than we bargain for. Whether you’ve read the tale, A Christmas Carol, or seen one of its many renditions in popular culture, it’s a story I enjoy hearing with each coming year to remind me of what's truly important - family, friends, and the relationships that bond us together to share the good days with and to help get through those bad days.
This winter, there will be many opportunities to experience this classic tale live! Gerald Dickens will perform a dramatic rendition of his great grandfather’s novella—a performance enjoyed by audiences across the world.
And if you enjoy his performance, you can also hear his discussion of the life and times of Charles Dickens—from his childhood to his awe-inspiring career.
But if you can’t make it to any of those events, you’ve still not missed the boat! David zum Brunnen will make a spectacular performance of the 17 characters from the traditional tale, a performance highly recommended by the Dickens family.
Don’t be a scrooge this winter. Discover the meaning of having cheer and good will towards all this season through spectacular storytelling.
