Emerald Coast Theatre Company Expands Performances for Dickens Christmas

Christmas carols, jingle bells and Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” are a few things that come to mind during the holidays. Last year, the Emerald Coast Theatre Company (ECTC) created a new holiday tradition with their original adaptation of Dickens’ beloved classic, entitled “A Dickens Christmas.”

In ECTC’s version, three actors play multiple roles as they bring to life the tale of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and his night with three ghosts. These professional actors seamlessly change from character to character throughout the night, giving a magnificent performance.

The play will be staged in multiple locations. Starting on Friday, December 4th at 7:30 p.m., the first performance will be at the Willows British Tea Room in Panama City. Five performances will be at HarborWalk Village in Destin. The shows at this breezy venue will be on Dec. 5, 12 and 19 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 12 and 19 at 2 p.m. The Dec. 12 matinee is a performance for families with special needs.

Additional performances will be held at the Panama City Centre for the Arts on Dec. 11 and 18, at 7:30 p.m. Final performances will be Dec. 20 at 2 p.m. at the Bayview Room Sandestin and 6:30 p.m. at the Sunset Bay Café Sandestin.

Nathanael Fisher will direct the performance. Fisher has been involved in professional theatre for more than 20 years. In addition to enjoying a new holiday tradition, tea and cookies will be served prior to all performances. Purchase your tickets to this festive event here or call (850) 687-1637.
