This toy-puppet theater extravaganza offers a new take on the classic story with old world accents, new world inclusiveness, and holiday songs.
From the show:
For the delight of audiences aged 5 to 105, Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre performs “A Christmas Carol, Oy! Hanukkah, Merry Kwanzaa.” Adapted, directed and reinvented by Vit Horejs, this toy-puppet theater extravaganza is a new take on Charles Dickens’ classic with Old World accents, New World inclusiveness and holiday songs. Into the familiar story are woven a surprising and delightful blend of English, Jewish, African, American and Czech winter rituals and customs, all performed by over three dozen marionettes ranging in size from four to twenty-four inches as well as found objects and toys.
