EVENT:  The Second City’s “A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens!”

by Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort Directed by Marc Warzecha World Premiere.

DESCRIPTION: With its trademark humor, irreverence and originality, The Second City, in a creative collaboration with CTG, is taking the classic Charles Dickens tale of hope and redemption and giving it a hearty twist.  In addition to Scrooge, Tiny Tim, the fat, plucked goose and those glum ghosts, the famous Victorian streets will spring to life with scheming politicians, sunbathing Santas, shoplifting celebrities and hilarious improvs, all performed by a talented group of Second City alums and an ever-changing stable of starry, drop-in special guests.  U.S. Bank is a proud sponsor of The Second City’s “A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens.”
