This month, Seattle Rep prepares to open “Mr. Dickens and His Carol,” the first of two world premiere productions this season being built entirely locally—from props and sets to costumes and casting.
This fictional story about how Charles Dickens’ beloved story “A Christmas Carol” came to life will open on Nov. 30 on the Bagley Wright stage and will run until Dec. 23. During the run of this new play, Seattle Rep will host a sensory-friendly performance, a Teen Night, a Victorian Cosplay night, an ASL Interpretation performance and much more.
In “Mr. Dickens and His Carol,” Charles Dickens should be looking forward to Christmas, but when his latest book is a flop, putting both his popularity and finances in peril, his publishers give an ultimatum: write a Christmas book within a month or lose everything.
Adapted for the stage from Samantha Silva’s critically acclaimed novel, this tale set in the heart of
Victorian England and weaves a fictional take on Dickens’ past, present and future into a comedic and poignant new holiday classic.
Seattle Rep’s Bagley Wright Theater is located at Seattle Center at the corner of Warren and Mercer Streets.
