Welcome to our site!
"....i have always thought of Christmas...as a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time: when men and women open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people as if they were fellow-passengers to the grave, not another race of creatures bound on other journeys."
We are currently fundraising for our Dickens Education work with children without access to arts programs and in shelters in New York this December.
It's all tax deductible and your donation will impact a child in this city, this holiday season!
Before you click through to learn more about us, know this....we are not only a a theatrical production, we are a show with a humanitarian mission across the disciplines with the works of Charles Dickens.
Every single bit of this show we made with all our heart and craft, in the spirit of, and to honor the works of Charles Dickens' legacy.
We celebrate diversity of all kinds, all cultures and believe the Carol and it's enduring themes are a humanitarian bridge.
We hope we have made the best show possible and more than that, we hope we are of service with it.... for a world that needs it, for Everyone.
We welcome all collaborators, sponsors, grants, investors so we can grow forward to be a global project that creates jobs for artists and paves a path of unity.
We hope you feel this is your show too...

Music of our Carol and the Streets
Did you know we thread all our music through Dickens love of the streets?
The streets raised him as a boy and in the spirit of that legacy, our music in the show is created by buskers from the subways and streets of whatever city or country we are in!
We love the mashup of old meets new, a classic story, stripped bare and with music that speaks to the times we live in.
Here is our beloved NYC busker, Jim Graseck!
Some of Our Christmases Past
We are so honored to have run in London in such special venues including the Charles Dickens
Museum Of London on Christmas Eve!
Thank you for Making Our 2014 London Performances a Success!!
From a man who loved humanity, faced adversity and weaved one of the most beautiful, enduring stories ever told to a coffee shop window in the snow, two adaptors fervently working to keep the honesty of the spirit intact, a New York Theatre and a collaboration with dear friends, to Brooklyn with over 50 volunteers.
It has been a miraculous journey filled with so many folks volunteering their time and talents and love to us.
At the heart, we have the theatrical legend and beloved Austin Pendleton as our Scrooge.
The journey of telling this story from a living room in Harlem to meeting the First Lady of the United States, the Prince of Burma, laying flowers at Westminster Abbey, continues.
This little story touches everyone.
It is truly Everyone’s Carol.
Our original adaptation of A Christmas Carol has been accepted into the Dramatists Guild of America!
