Charles Dickens' 1867 Swedish Reading Tour is off to a rough start. Due to an inexplicable loss of his luggage, he regretfully announces that he will be unable to read from his beloved classic, A Christmas Carol. All is not lost however; Dickens delivers what he promised by performing from memory the magical story of Ebenezer Scrooge's journey from miserliness to redemption with warmth and humour. This one-man play is based on the condensed version Dickens himself used on his historic reading tours of the United States.

Front Row Theatre is proud to present its version of the timeless classic A Christmas Carol, with the tight-fisted misery that is Ebenezer Scrooge, the glorious Ghosts of the past, present and future, and of course, Tiny Tim. It is the perfect tale to be told on those dark winter nights just before Christmas. Told by the original storyteller, Charles Dickens, this story will enchant and delight people of all ages, as it has done for the last 177 years.
Our very own Fraser James MacLeod will be playing Dickens himself, who tells the story of “A Christmas Carol” in a dramatic theatre show, in which he plays every character imaginable. If you ever wanted to be enthralled by a story, this is one that will capture your imagination and allow you and your family to indulge in that Christmas Spirit we all love, with “humbug” being the furthest thing from your mind. Heart-warming, funny, thrilling, and not to be missed!
