The Cultch presents the world premiere of Little Dickens: The Daisy Theatre!

Historic Theatre05 Dec '17 to 22 Dec '17 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • The Cultch presents the world premiere of Little Dickens: The Daisy Theatre!
In Ronnie Burkett’s Little Dickens, the cast of The Daisy Theatre take on the beloved holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, in the merriest marionette mash-up ever. Faded Daisy diva, Esmé Massengill, plays the role of miserly, drunken, bitter Esmé Scrooge, in this Burkett-esque retelling of the Dickens classic. 
 
As always with an improvised Daisy show, there is no set script, and in the journey of Esmé Scrooge toward redemption, she encounters all the Daisy favourites portraying Dickens’ familiar characters. In keeping with the vaudeville show theme of The Daisy Theatre, popular Christmas songs will feature in a burlesque opening, sultry jazz solos, and the merriment of Fezziwig’s party. 
 
A raucous, adults-only holiday treat, Little Dickensholds true to the heart of A Christmas Carol by featuring The Daisy Theatre’s most iconic and beloved character, Schnitzel, as Tiny Tim in a special premiere event created for The Cultch.
