The Night Before Christmas Carol brings spectators into Charles Dickens' study on Friday, the thirteenth of October 1843. History, humor and the holiday come to life as Dickens reveals his writing process, uncloaking the personal inspirations for his work. Renowned scholar, author, and playwright Dr. Elliot Engel, crafts the entertaining character study, which delights holiday audiences of all ages. In this acclaimed performance, actor David zum Brunnen portrays Charles Dickens and 17 familiar characters; giving personal, social, and historical context to the ghostly classic, A Christmas Carol. The "behind the scenes" discoveries renew the classic tale, bringing a fresh perspective to a family holiday tradition. The stage production is a staple of EbzB Productions' theatrical touring repertoire.

The Night Before Christmas Carol is available on DVD at ($20).
