By Charles Dickens
Performed by John D. Huston
December 17-23, 2017
Evenings at 7:30 p.m. Saturday matinee at 2:30 p.m.
For over 25 years, veteran solo performer John D. Huston has recreated the performances of Charles Dickens’ own one man A Christmas Carol to full houses and standing ovations in the NAC’s 4th Stage. We’re proud to welcome this Ottawa holiday tradition to The Gladstone for a second year. Huston, nominated by the Capital Critics’ Circle as Best Actor 2014-15, performs A Christmas Carol using a remarkable range of accents and body language. The beloved story appears before you woven from the interplay of Dickens’ richly-crafted text, Huston’s bravura performance and your own imagination.
From December 18-21 he is joined by the acclaimed Ottawa Trio Finest Kind performing exquisitely harmonized versions of carols sung in pubs, on street corners and in homes in Dickens’ time. For performances on the 22-23rd Christmas carols will be provided by Mr. Dickens’ musical guest, popular Ottawa celtic harpist, Susan Toman.
