The Philadelphia Artists’ Collective brings Charles Dickens’ text to life through a Dramatic Reading of A Christmas Carol. Starting with Dickens’ own adaptation for his solo performances, the PAC presents a two-person reading event accompanied by live music and sound effects, celebrating the rich language of Dickens’ story and creating a theatre event for the whole family. Directed and Adapted by PAC Co-Founding Artistic Director Damon Bonetti, this event features acclaimed Broadway actor Christopher Coucill as our narrator (and Scrooge) and Andrew Clotworthy as various characters and live musician. Join us to welcome the season with this heartwarming tale of redemption.
