What the dickens!

Wade Lynch plays all 29 characters in A Christmas Carol

The Island Theatre Festival presents Charles Dickens’A Christmas Carol (or Rob as everybody) starring veteran actor Rob MacLean as all 29 characters in this classic holiday show. Experience the magic of an old tale told in a new way at local theatres across the Island.

This December, MacLean will channel all the spirits and lessons learned over his career to embody the characters in A Christmas Carol. He will transform from a shaken Scrooge, to Undertaker’s Man, Tiny Tim, and three or four good-humoured fellows, among others.

Produced by Campbell Webster Entertainment, the one-man, one-hour show will run in December on select dates, including: December 12, 13, 14, and 17 at Florence Simmons Performance Hall in Charlottetown; December 15 and 16 (matinee) at Kings Playhouse in Georgetown; and December 16 and 17 (matinee) at Souris Show Hall. Evening performances start at 7:30 pm with matinee performances at 1 pm. Stick around after the show for some carol singing and apple cider with the whole cast.
