Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort’s ‘A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens’.

A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens

Colbert News Hub have partnered with the folks at Allied Live to bring you a ‘see it early and save’ discount when you purchase tickets for performances of The Second City’s ‘A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens’ at Centre Theatre Group’s Kirk Douglas Theatre.

Tickets for performances November 24th – 28th are just $20 & $35.

With its trademark humor, irreverence and originality, The Second City is giving the classic Charles Dickens’ Christmas tale a hearty twist.

Dickens’ famous Victorian streets spring to life as Scrooge, Tiny Tim, that fat, plucked goose and those know-it-all ghosts find themselves hopelessly mixed up with anachronistic characters, hilarious improv and an ever-changing stable of starry, drop-in special guests. A recipe chock full of Holiday hilarity!

Writers Peter Gwinn (formerly of The Colbert Report) and Bobby Mort (currently of The Colbert Report) join Director Marc Warzecha (Resident Director, The Second City) and a cast which features Frank Caeti (MADtv), Larry Joe Campbell (According to Jim), Dan Castellaneta (The Simpsons), Amanda Blake Davis (Second City Does Dallas at the Dallas Theatre Center), Brian Stepanek (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody) and Jean Villepique (Up All Night).

November 24th – Decemeber 30th, 2012
