Charles Dickens Writes A Christmas Carol

The most popular production in Bag&Baggage history returns to christen our new home with laughter and cheer this holiday season!

It’s the night before Christmas and Charles Dickens is struck by a powerful inspiration: to write a story that will remind everyone of the true meaning of Christmas. But how? How, how, how?

Join Dickens in his London study on Christmas Eve as he argues, cajoles, berates, and battles with the characters themselves, all while trying to write the world’s most popular holiday tale!

This Christmas treat features a collection of Bag&Baggage’s favorite actors, including Kymberli Colbourne as Scrooge and Peter Schuyler as Dickens himself! A hilarious and heartwarming Christmas comedy, in true Bag&Baggage style!

“With simple and effective set designs, an exceptional cast, and deft writing, this production brings farcical humor and delightful new life to scenes that had, until now, become mere wintery routine.”
