Friday 12/21/18, 7pm - 12/23/18, 2pm, CYDP Dance Company, Somerville
A contemporary dance twist on a holiday classic.
WHAT THE DICKENS! is a great show for the family, both affordable and intimate. Boston Ballet alum Clyde Nantais returns as Ebenezer Scrooge, Ryan P. Casey and Jenny Oliver as Bob and Mrs. Cratchit, Yosi Karahashi as the Ghost of Christmas Future, along with other collaborations with artists, set building, and costume design.
Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of ‘What the Dickens!’ and the 175th Anniversary of ‘A Christmas Carol’, Deborah Mason's Cambridge Youth Dance Company, with their roster of stellar guest artists (and some surprise appearances!), are bringing their acclaimed production of 'What the Dickens!' to John Hancock Hall for eight performances, Dec. 14 – 23, 2018. Weaving contemporary dance, ballet, tap, hip hop, flamenco, projections, narration and more, ‘What The Dickens!’ (a Boston Globe Top Holiday Pick) is an enchanting dance-theater rendition of Dickens’ classic, timely story of transforming greed into kindness and joy. Produced and Directed by Deborah Mason and Leslie Woodies (Broadway veteran and Boston Ballet alum), What The Dickens! bursts with “positive themes of humanity, love, inclusion and hope that will make your heart soar.” Mason says, “That's our message. This is our gift to Boston.”
Performances Dec 14 - 23: Fridays at 7 pm, Saturdays at 2 pm & 7 pm, and Sundays at 2 pm. $65-$25.
