An adaptation of Dickens’ classic with Old World accents and New World inclusiveness.

Featuring over 30 puppets by Milos Kasal backed up by a live chorus. Czech, English, Hebrew & Swahili songs are performed acapella by Judith Barnes and Hayden DeWitt. A delight for audiences ages 5 – 105.

Vit Horejs, an emigre from Prague, founded Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre in 1990, utilizing century-old Czech puppets which he found at Jan Hus Church on East 74th Street. His trademark is using puppets of many sizes, from six-inch toy marionettes to twelve-foot rod puppets which double as scenery. CAMT is dedicated to preserving and presenting traditional and not-so-traditional puppetry.

“Dazzling and irreverent presentation of the classic tale performed with beautiful marionettes by a superb puppeteer and eclectic holiday songs.”

“’Christmas Carol’ is exactly what an audience would want from a holiday show. It tells a familiar tale with an added twist, it reminds us about the spirit of the season, and it puts a smile on the face of even the scroogiest of spectators. “
