How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I really enjoyed this production by the Northside Theater Company. It was true to the Dickens' story and very well staged. The Olinder is a tiny theater and the stage takes up about half the space. The ensemble cast of 13 took on various roles and everyone was quite good in their parts. The cast narrated the story between dialogue by choral speaking Dickens' prose. The direction put some cute spins on the this old chestnut. This is an annual event for the NTC, and I'll definitely put it on my Christmas List for years to come!

Help others enjoy a great night out

Dress
Info
This is a very small theater and the seats are hotel-style ballroom chairs on risers. The padding on the chair seats was virtually nonexistant, at least mine was very uncomfortable. I wadded up my coat and sat on it during Act II. The risers handrails are a bit rickety, so take care if you go to the upper levels.
