More About the Show:
With its trademark humor, irreverence and originality, The Second City is giving the classic Charles Dickens’ Christmas tale a hearty twist. Dickens’ famous Victorian streets spring to life as Scrooge, Tiny Tim, that fat, plucked goose and those know-it-all ghosts find themselves hopelessly mixed up with anachronistic characters, hilarious improv and an ever-changing stable of starry, drop-in special guests. A recipe chock full of Holiday hilarity!
The Second City scoured their address book to assemble a gaggle of luminary alumni to create this world premiere. Writers Peter Gwinn (formerly of The Colbert Report) and Bobby Mort (currently of The Colbert Report) join Director Marc Warzecha (Resident Director, The Second City) and a cast which features Frank Caeti (MADtv), Larry Joe Campbell (According to Jim), Dan Castellaneta (The Simpsons), Amanda Blake Davis (Second City Does Dallas at the Dallas Theatre Center), Brian Stepanek (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody), Jean Villepique (Up All Night) and Ron West (3rd Rock From the Sun).
