Come join us for my one-man, one-hour, solo adaptation of this  timeless Christmas classic by Charles Dickens! This special, one-night only performance is a benefit for Retro Productions and will take place in the Hampden-Booth Library at The Players Club, hosted by member, Peter Zinn.

Tell the doorman you are a guest of Peter Zinn.

Please note: the club has a “business” dress code policy. Cocktail attire recommended for this event.


Charles Dickens’ 1867 American Reading Tour is off to a rough start. Due to an inexplicable loss of his luggage, he regretfully announces that he will be unable to read from his beloved classic, “A Christmas Carol”. All is not lost however; Dickens delivers what he promised by performing from memory the magical story of Ebenezer Scrooge’s journey from miserliness to redemption with warmth and humor. This one-man play is based on the condensed version Dickens himself used on his historic reading tours of the United States and is adapted here to offer a unique theatrical experience. One actor. One hour!
