"A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens
Adapted by James Reynard
A VERY different approach to telling this famous tale, yet one that still keeps to the traditional Dickensian portrayal. Sections of the audience are called upon to provide some of the sound effects (bells, howling wind, toasts of good cheer)! A truly interactive production with many other surprises!
For this Holiday Production, Theatre Bacchus is proud to be hosted by BOTH Vineland Estates Winery AND White Meadows Maple Farms!
Our show will be performed in the beautiful, high-vaulted barn at White Meadows Farm and Vineland Estates will be offering their exceptional wines for purchase by the glass to enjoy at the show.
Suitable for audiences 8 years old and up!
Please note that fog machine and lightning effects (not strobe) will be used in this performance.
Vineland Estates Winery (VEW) wine will be available for $9 per 5oz glass. Cabernet Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling and Rose will be served by the glass (can be ordered at the bar)
VEW charcuterie snack boxes for 2 are available for pre-order. $20 per box (to pre-order, email Leighanna at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Vineland is ALSO offering a specially curated Wine Package for this occasion!
"Ebenezer's Leisure Wine Package" What wines did old Scrooge enjoy for his Christmas dinner after his reformation? The following four wines (or 4 "spirits") represent the wondrous journey with the ghosts that transformed Ebenezer Scrooge.
