Pontine Theatre Premieres "A Victorian Christmas"


Dec 6, 2018 to Dec 9, 2018


Pontine Theatre’s co-artistic directors, Marguerite Mathews and Greg Gather,s celebrate the holidays with a program of Victorian-era Christmas stories. The centerpiece of “A Victorian Christmas" is an original toy theatre adaptation of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” Toy theatre is a form of miniature theater that enjoyed great popularity as a parlor entertainment in Victorian times. Toy theaters were printed on paperboard sheets and sold as kits at the concession stand of an opera house, playhouse, or vaudeville theater. Toy theaters were assembled at home and performed for friends and family members. The nostalgic charm of this traditional form is sure to put you in the holiday spirit.

December 6-9, 2018, shows on Thurs at 3 p.m., Fri at 7 p.m., Sat at 3 p.m. and Sun at 2 p.m.
