“Marley was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. Old Marley
was as dead as a doornail.”
So begins A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Some say this short story (first
published in 1843) transformed Christmas into a major holiday. The tale has inspired
movies, operas, readings and countless stage performances around the globe.
Veteran NST actor Tim Pugliese makes the stage vibrate with his interpretation of
Dickens’ Holiday tale. In an impressive tour-de-force, Pugliese moves about the stage as
he recounts this classic story and plays all the parts – by himself. You’ll find yourself
looking at characters that aren’t really there, but you will see them in your mind, just as
surely as Pugliese himself does. This form of story-telling is fun for the whole family.
We invite you this holiday season to share our annual unique presentation of A Christmas Carol with us in two locations: Hammond Hall in Winter Harbor on December 8th at 7:00 P.M. and the Blue Hill Town Hall Theater on Friday & Saturday, December 14th & 15th at 7:00 PM. Additionally we are having a memorial/benefit for the Janet Butler Torrey Fund on Sunday, December 16th at 3:00 P.M. with Ellacappella singing and a reception afterwards. All proceeds will go to the Janet Butler Torrey Trust Fund. Phone 963-2569 for tickets for the Winter Harbor show and 200-4720 for tickets or information for the shows in Blue Hill. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors for all performances with the exception of the Janet Butler Torrey benefit.
