Tom Harryman, a MCC theatre instructor and professional actor, has adapted the wonderful world and colorful characters created by Dickens into his one-man performance enhanced in the imitate setting of Overbrook Theater. The brilliant holiday story is filled with humor and pathos, spirits and sinners, Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and more.
“Harryman breathes life into the story by weaving classic characters in and out of his narration,” wrote one reviewer. “His ability to create many characters with body and voice is astounding.”
The production was originally directed by the MCC Center for Theater Director Sheila Kulp Wahamaki with original designs by Richard Oman, Jeanette Wahr, Brian Goodman, and Harryman.
