December 2020 was one like no other and Summoners Ensemble Theatre's A CHRISTMAS CAROL at the MERCHANT’S HOUSE returned for its 8th holiday season, virtually. Our patrons were transported back 150 years from the comfort of their homes for this captivating one-hour performance filmed in the landmark Merchant’s House dressed for the joyous season with a table-top tree, boughs of holly, and flickering candles.
In the spirit of Mr. Dickens' message of compassion, generosity, and goodwill, we wanted performances to be accessible to "Every One!" We offered the scheduled performances for free with a suggested donation of $30 for those who could afford to give.
December 1867. Charles Dickens arrives in New York City for a month of sold-out performances of his beloved holiday classic, A Christmas Carol. Gather your friends and family and join Mr. Dickens, in the person of John Kevin Jones, as he tells this timeless Christmas tale -- created from Dickens’ own touring script--in the richly-appointed and intact Greek Revival double parlor of the 1832 Merchant's House.
