The Ghosts of Christmas Past Staged Reading

November 30, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until January 4, 2024

For one weekend only, The Archive Theater will bring you a unique preview of their Victorian Christmas production The Ghosts of Christmas Past. The Merriwether family invites you to their family parlor to celebrate a true Victorian Christmas by telling ghost stories on Christmas Eve for a thrilling, chilling holiday event. Enjoy a family-friendly production with traditional holiday desserts, spiced cider, live music, a carol sing-along, and deliciously spooky tales. But be on your best behavior because Krampus is coming.

We hope you’ll join us for The Ghosts of Christmas Past – Staged Reading (absolutely no part of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol will be included).

If you haven’t been to a staged reading before, here’s what you can expect. Actors in Victorian costume will be reading from scripts and acting out portions of the show on a minimal holiday-themed set with live music accompaniment. Afterward, we’ll have opportunities for guests to give us feedback on our script as we work to bring it to full production for 2024.
