Virtual performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol presented by Gulfshore Playhouse
December 19, 2020
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until January 3, 2021
Gulfshore Playhouse and producer Hunter Arnold unofficially kicked off the holiday season by announcing a special filmed version of Charles Dickens’ beloved holiday classic “A Christmas Carol.” A collaboration with TBD Pictures, and available for viewing through Jan. 3, 2021, this timeless tale stars one of the finest stage actors, Tony Award-winner Jefferson Mays, who has starred in Broadway’s “I Am My Own Wife” and “Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.”
Experience “A Christmas Carol” unlike any other – past, present or future. Ebenezer Scrooge comes to thrilling new life as Mays plays over 50 roles in a virtuosic, master class of a performance that must be seen to be believed. This theatrical achievement comes from the haunting vision of one of Broadway’s most imaginative directors, two-time Tony Award-nominee Michael Arden.
Staged exclusively for this film and captured live with breathtaking clarity, this must-watch streaming event conjures the powerful spirits of Christmas and brings all the magic of live theatre home for the holidays. “A Christmas Carol” was filmed at New York’s United Palace, chosen to preserve the power of the theatrical storytelling Mays and Arden have created.
While this is not a Gulfshore Playhouse production, this streaming video event will benefit the theater as well as other theaters across the country, which have been devastated by the pandemic.
Tickets are $50 and available for purchase through January 3. Visit https://www.gulfshoreplayhouse.org/2020-2021-season/a-christmas-carol/ for more information.
