Adapted and Directed by Michael Grimm

December 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17, 21, 22, 23, 2011

Matinee December 18 @ 2 PM

Reno, NV.  Brüka Theatre presents A Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens and is adapted and directed for three actors by Michael Grimm. Brüka’s second show of the19th season is a story of redemption and of the power of the Christmas spirit that has become an unrivaled holiday tradition in the English-speaking world. The revival of Brüka Theatre’s original adaption of Dickens' masterpiece casts three actors, Bob Grimm, Mary Bennett and Michael Grimm, to portray more than 20 characters on a minimalist set, with an original soundtrack by Gary Kephart and Wolfgang Price. This production gives the audience the unique opportunity to experience the story with the much neglected narration of Dickens as it’s centerpiece. Much like the original theatrical storytelling that Dickens used to perform, himself, this production is a hybrid of a staged reading and a theatrical performance piece. A theatrical experience that is equivalent to cracking open an ancient tome and telling  Christmas stories by the light of a yule log. It's sure to give you and your family a healthy dose of the "Christmas Spirit."

This Christmas Carol revival opens Friday, December 9, 2011 and plays for 10 total performances December 10, 14, 15, 16, 17, 21, 22, 23, 2011 with a December18 matinee at 2 PM. Enjoy a post show opening night champagne reception. The shows run Thursdays through Saturdays with evening shows at 8:00 pm with two Wednesday night shows during the run. The Sunday matinee on December 6 is followed by a talkback with the company and audience.  The doors open a half an hour before curtain time.
