A Christmas Carol
"Astounding ... A ‘Carol’ worth singing about” – Jack Craib, South Shore Critic, 2013
Neil McGarry’s award winning, one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol returns to Cotuit Center for the Arts Tues - Thurs, December 19 - 21.
Using only Charles Dickens’ original text, McGarry delivers a riveting performance of the classic holiday story, portraying each and every character with full engagement and, somehow, making you believe you’re watching a full company of players. Fully staged, complete with dancing, this one-man tour de force has left critics and audiences of all ages laughing and crying with joy – and rightly so.
