Second City Twist Your Dickens

Second City Twist Your Dickens

God Help Us, Every One!

The Second City partners with Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles to give the classic Charles Dickens’ Christmas tale a hearty twist. The famous Victorian streets will spring to frenzied life as Scrooge, Tiny Tim, that fat, plucked goose, and those know-it-all ghosts find themselves hopelessly mixed up with anachronistic characters, hilarious improvs and an ever-changing stable of starry, drop-in special guests. It all makes for a recipe chock full of Holiday hilarity for all!

The world premiere of The Second City’s A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens! is written by Second City alums, Peter Gwinn (formerly of The Colbert Report) and Bobby Mort (currently of The Colbert Report). Directed by yet another Second City alum, Marc Warzecha (Resident Director, The Second City) the cast features Frank Caeti (MADtv), Larry Joe Campbell (According to Jim), Dan Castellaneta (The Simpsons), Amanda Blake Davis (Second City Does Dallas at the Dallas Theatre Center), Brian Stepanek (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody), Jean Villepique (Up All Night) and Ron West (3rd Rock from the Sun).

Center Theatre Group is Los Angeles’ preeminent non-profit theatre company. On our three stages – the Ahmanson Theatre, the Mark Taper Forum and the Kirk Douglas Theatre – we present the highest quality and broadest range of theatre: groundbreaking new works, explosive productions of the classics and hit Broadway plays and musicals.
