A Christmas Carol with Charles Dickens

Our holiday tradition is returning to the Independent Shakespeare Company for its 19th year! Join us as we recreate (with a little artistic license) the experience of a public reading of A Christmas Carol, given by Charles Dickens himself. Enjoy a warm cup of hot chocolate or spiced (and spiked!) cider as the ISC Studio transforms into a cozy Victorian drawing room.
