Parson's Nose to Present A CHRISTMAS CAROL This Weekend

Parson's Nose Theater (PNT), the acclaimed classical comedic theater company, continues its 16th Season with Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, opening Saturday, December 19th. Adapted by Artistic Director, Lance Davis, this 75-minute performance is presented as a part of the theater's "Pay What You Will" Readers' Theater Series. Due to popular demand, tickets only remain for the Saturday night reading. Sunday, December 20th is SOLD OUT.

"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, brought to life by Mary Chalon and Barry Gordon, and performed dialogue by favorite Parson's Nose Company Members, featuring Artistic Director, Lance Davis, as the infamous Ebenezer Scrooge. After the readings, audience members are invited to enjoy a glass of cheer with the PNT Company.

Parson's Nose Theater's 2015-16 Season continues with A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, December 19th at 7pm and December 20th at 3pm.
