Jeff Smith 4 p.m., Aug. 28
Mr. Scrooge & Mr. Dickens
The play is a faithful adaptation of Charles Dickens' beloved holiday classic A Christmas Carol, with a new embellishment: Dickens himself appears onstage to read sections from the work -- primarily passages describing the people and places of Victorian England, an aspect generally lost in adaptations of A Christmas Carol.
The production is further enhanced by carolers, dancers, computer-controlled lighting, music, and powerful sound effects. There will also be a surprise visit by Santa at the end of the show.
Mr. Scrooge & Mr. Dickens has been performed annually to sell-out audiences throughout Southern California. 100% of this year's ticket sales (not just proceeds) benefit the Historical Society.
$10 adults; $5 children under 12.
- Cost: $5 - $10
