The Cultch presents Little Dickens

Historic Theatre, 1895 Venables St.04 Dec '18 to 22 Dec '18 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • The Cultch presents Little Dickens
The Cultch is thrilled to have world renowned puppeteer Ronnie Burkett back at the Historic Theatre this December 4-22 with his Cultch exclusive holiday hit, Little Dickens.
 
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 Dickens holds true to the heart of A Christmas Carol by featuring The Daisy Theatre’s most iconic and beloved character, Schnitzel, as Tiny Tim.
 
The Daisy Theatre is the thirteenth production from Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes, following the international successes Penny Plain, Billy Twinkle, 10 Days on Earth, Provenance and the “Memory Dress Trilogy” of Tinka’s New Dress, Street of Blood and Happy. Little Dickens has been created specifically for The Cultch and the amazing Vancouver audiences who have embraced The Daisy Theatre characters in five sold-out runs.
