A Christmas Carol, featuring actors Stephen Collins and Poornima Kirby at the Concord Free Public Library

Join actors Stephen Collins and Poornima Kirby for a funny, heartfelt journey through Charles’ Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. The event will take place on Wednesday, December 14 at 6:30 PM at the Concord Free Public Library, 129 Main St. in Concord.

This 1-hour adaptation shows Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformation from a grumpy, selfish misanthrope to a generous, wise and kindly man, full of the spirit of Christmas. With Stephen playing Scrooge and Poornima swiftly changing between the other characters, this fast-paced, playful adaptation keeps the beauty and humor of Dickens’ original text, interspersed with melodious Christmas carols, and even a lively English folk dance. Come warm your heart and ring in the holiday season with this refreshing take on a familiar tale!

Magic, Music, Transformation? . . . Humbug!
