This one-hour play recreates the famous performance tour by Charles Dickens in 1867 with his classic tale, A Christmas Carol, bringing the travails of Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and Tiny Tim alive. Taken from the original script, actor Michael Muldoon plays Charles Dickens and tells the well-loved tale in the parlor of the beautifully decorated Lyndhurst Mansion meeting the different spirits and characters. A newspaper wrote of Dickens at the time, “He gave to every character a different voice, a different style, a different face.” Lyndhurst has endeavored to bring this spirit to its adaptation of A Christmas Carol in a historic period setting.
Performances will take place in the parlor of Lyndhurst Mansion, General Admission.
The play runs without intermission. Please plan on 90 minutes including check-in at the Lyndhurst Welcome Center.
Where: Lyndhurst, 635 South Broadway, Tarrytown NY 10591
2023 Dates: December 8-10, 15-17, 23-24, 26.
