A Christmas Carol by Gerald Dickens
Charles Dickens’ literary masterpiece, A Christmas Carol, continues to shape the way we celebrate Christmas over 150 years after the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and the three spirits of Christmas first touched hearts in 1843.
Join us in welcoming the author’s great-great grandson, renowned actor Gerald Dickens, once again to perform his one-man stage adaptation of A Christmas Carol. Every year Byers’ Choice is proud to host Mr. Dickens as he brings the classic Christmas story to life on stage in a performance that you’ll want to watch year after year. More Info . . .

Gerald Charles Dickens
Gerald Dickens is a great great grandson of the author Charles Dickens. He has worked as an actor, director and producer for many years.
In 1993 he created his first one-man show, a theatrical performance of A Christmas Carol inspired by Charles’ own energetic readings of the 1860s.
A fascination with the life and works of his subject led him to write and direct further one-man shows including Mr. Dickens is Coming!, Nicholas Nickleby and Sketches by Boz. He regularly performs in major theatres and arts centers as well as at hotels and stately homes. He has appeared at several arts and literary festivals in the UK and has been entertaining cruise ship passengers worldwide since 2007.
In 2012, as part of the Charles Dickens bicentennial celebrations, Gerald met the Queen of England during a special reception at Buckingham Palace.
Gerald enjoys introducing the works of Charles Dickens to children and young adults, and has taken workshops and performances into schools, colleges and universities both in the UK and the USA.
He has recorded his one-man dramatization of A Christmas Carol, and it has been regularly broadcast on radio.
