Have a Dickens of a Time with Independent Shakespeare Co. Three more performances of A Christmas Carol with Charles Dickens will take place this weekend at the ISC Studio in Atwater Village. The show recreates (with a little artistic license) the experience of a public reading of A Christmas Carol, given by Dickens himself. It is based on an adaption the author made of his famous Christmas story and performed by David Melville, with musical accompaniment and dramatic interjections by Mary Guilliams. Expect a performance full of the acting pyrotechnics Dickens was famous for, holiday music, wry humor, and redemption. Appropriate for ages 7 and up. Three performance remain: Saturday, Dec 17 at 5pm; Sunday, Dec 18 at 2pm; and Sunday Dec 18 at 5pm. (This last performance may say that it is sold out but I believe some additional tickets have just been made available).
