A Very Victorian Christmas Carol returns to the Wayside Inn for two shows, brought to life by actor and Framingham native Al LePage—all in the enchanted Martha Mary Chapel!
Friday, December 16th at 8pm: “Done Like Dickens”
Dickens’ very own Historic Script and Acting-style come to life!
Saturday, December 17th at 2pm: “A Christmas Carol Times Two”
LIVE English Christmas Carol Organ Music combined with a shorter version of Dickens historic Carol script!
Friday’s performance is best enjoyed by adults and mature children age 10 upwards, and Saturdays performance will best serve families with children age 7 and up, and older adults, too!
LePage will portray “Englishman Thomas Hutchinson, Traveling Thespian” in a dramatic reading of the version which Charles Dickens himself originally edited and performed. And, as Dickens himself did it, will re-create all 26 characters by miraculously transforming himself through his use of voice, facial expressions, and gestures. LePage dramatically sets the stage by interacting with the audience too, just before the performance begins, in the character and clothing of the Victorian era—adding some new twists and surprises to the sold-out performances he’s had for the last 3 years!
$10 admission per person includes holiday cookies served during intermission, and all proceeds benefit the emergency food pantry “A Place to Turn” and the non-profit mission of the Wayside Inn Historic Site.
Seating is general admission and limited to only 140 tickets for each performance. Phone (978) 443-1776 for reservations beginning November 1st. No refunds. All sales final.
