Dickens' timeless holiday fave undergoes a radically entertaining remaking courtesy of the famed Wanderlust Circus and quirky local chamber-music ensemble 3 Leg Torso. Acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, jazz-bos, crooners and clowns combine to create a completely new take on the Scrooge story, though the cranky old gent still learns the true meaning of Christmas. The score is provided by 3 Leg Torso, formerly a trio and now a quintet. Their wholly original sound is an eclectic mix of classical, tango, klezmer, Latin and world music, and their well-known fans range from Penn & Teller's Teller to director Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me).

Reviews & Ratings
The music of Amanda Richards covers a wide and diverse field -- from sensuous ballads to old-school rockabilly; soulful bossa-nova to laugh-out-loud country satire. In 2004, at the age of twenty-one she released Not Always Sexy as her first album followed by Live at Mississippi Studios in 2006, which was hailed as "spellbinding across the spectrum, and a standout whose star is on the rise" by the Portland Tribune.
In 2009, Amanda released Who Has Your Heart to great reviews and a growing fan base, with music from the album being picked up by radios stations of different genres. Her latest studio album, the post-apocalyptic, zombie-themed Play Dead (2010), was praised by the Portland Mercury as “sweet and enduring, despite Richards’s bloody lyrical content. The end of days never sounded so sweet."
