A Christmas Carol Returns to the Merchant's House Museum

John Kevin Jones narrates the classic tale as Charles Dickens.

John Kevin Jones stars as Charles Dickens in the Summoners Ensemble Theatre production of A Christmas Carol.

Summoners Ensemble Theatre's A Christmas Carol returns to the Merchant's House for the third consecutive holiday season.

John Kevin Jones portrays Charles Dickens as he tells the timeless Christmas tale in the Greek Revival parlor of the landmark 1832 Merchant's House Museum. The one-hour performance, created from Dickens' own script and directed by Dr. Rhonda Dodd, transports audiences back 150 years in a setting surrounded by 19th-century holiday decorations, flickering candles, and richly appointed period furnishings. Performances will run from December 10-24.

Pre-performance receptions with the show's star John Kevin Jones will also be held each night, beginning at 6pm, except for 5pm receptions on December 23 and 24. Mulled wine and light fare will be served in the venue's cozy mid-19th-century kitchen.
