Since it was first published in December 1843, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol has been synonymous with the spirit of Christmas.
Never out of print, its central characters of Ebenezer Scrooge, Jacob Marley, Bob Cratchit, and Tiny Tim, have become literary household names. Originally conceived by Dickens as a political pamphlet to improve the harsh conditions of life for poor children in Victorian England, the work eventually emerged as one of the best loved novels of all time.
This festive season, acclaimed actor Tama Matheson brings to life the timeless characters who have tugged at the heartstrings of readers of all ages, and provides a fascinating insight into the life and times of Charles Dickens.
Enhancing this joyous and moving experience will be performances of popular carols by Australia’s favourite bass-baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes and the Australian Youth Choir, under the musical direction of Tahu Matheson.
A Dickenson Christmas will delight audiences and is proudly presented by Andrew McKinnon as the finale of this 30th Anniversary celebrations as an independent producer.
Readings by Tama Matheson, carols performed by Teddy Tahu Rhodes and the Australian Youth Choir, musical accompaniment by Tahu Matheson, piano devised and directed by Tama Matheson.
