Philadelphia native and AEA actor, Scott Langdon, will perform his one-man interpretation of the original Charles Dickens masterpiece, “A Christmas Carol” on Saturdays and Sundays from November 24 – December 22, 2013, at the beautiful Media Theater in Media, PA.
This wonderful one-man production uses minimal set pieces, relying instead on Dickens’ text and Langdon’s ability to portray every character in the story. The actor brought the production to Princeton, NJ in 2009 and the East Brunswick Performing Arts Center in 2011, to great acclaim.
Langdon will play Scrooge, Fezziwig, Tiny Tim, the Three Ghosts and every other yuletide Dickensian character this Holiday season in an adaptation taken directly from Charles Dickens’ own cutting of his famous story.
Dickens, famous as an author, of course, was equally popular with audiences as a reader of his works on the stage. From 1867-68, Dickens brought his enormously successful reading tour to America. His favorite work to read, and far and away the one most adored by fans, was his little story called, “A Christmas Carol.” It was from this reading tour in that Langdon took inspiration for his interpretation of the story.
“Everyone from Jim Carrey to Patrick Stewart to The Muppets has had a go at delivering this timeless tale, yet it continues to be relevant even today. It gets to the heart and soul of the holidays,” says Langdon. “It has been a dream of mine for years to bring this to the stage and this unique adaptation will bring the story to life in a whole new way.”
Running Saturdays at 11:00am and Sundays at 7:00pm from November 24-December 22, 2013, tickets are a very family friendly $15 a piece for every show. This is a Holiday experience that no one in the family will want to miss! The Media Theatre is located at 104 State St. in Media, PA. The number to call for tickets is: (610) 891-0100.
