Nicole Alivojvodic Review The Little Dickens On Now At The Cultch Until December 24th

10 Dec

LittleDickensBack again this holiday season is The Cultch exclusive hit Little Dickens. Award winning puppeteer Ronnie Burkett brings the classic tale of A Christmas Carol to life with the quirky and beloved characters of the Daisy Theatre. Before you assume that this is a show for kids, be warned that it most certainly is not! Little Dickens is a raucous, adults-only holiday treat, combining a mastery of marionette puppetry, playful songs, and improvisation. The far from traditional characters mixed in with raunchy commentary and audience participation make for a unique and riotous night at the theatre.

The story follows faded Daisy diva, Esmé Massengill, in the role of miserly, drunken, bitter Esmé Scrooge as she encounters Dickens’ familiar characters (with a twist) on her journey to redemption. Burkett wonderfully captures the different voices of dozens of characters in this one-man show and earned a standing ovation on opening night! This showbiz version of the Dickens classic is performed exclusively for Cultch audiences so make sure you see it while it’s on.

Little Dickens is on now until December 24th. Get your tickets at The Cultch.
