Willem Lange, a radio show host and storyteller, will perform Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol: a ghost story” on Friday, Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. live on stage at the Lost Nation Theater. Audiences can view the live performance via livestream online by registering beforehand. Lange uses the cutting of the novel Dickens himself used when performing the tale.
Emmy-winner Lange’s tradition of reading Dickens’ Christmas Carol began in 1975, and has always been performed as a benefit. Lost Nation Theater is happy to be supporting “The Haven” in the Upper Valley by presenting this show. The show is free, but donations are gratefully accepted.
Because of COVID-19 restrictions, it is unlikely that an in-person audience will be allowed in the theater, but the producers will livestream and record the event for later sharing. The performance runs approximately 70 minutes without an intermission.
Sponsors include Capitol Copy, the City of Montpelier, the National Life Group, Eternity, The Point-FM, the World newspaper, the Vermont Arts Council, the Estate of Ted Richards, the Mary Shriver Fund of the Alan Weiss Estate, and Vermont Mutual Insurance.
