Event Details

In this world premiere online event created for audiences of all ages, Manual Cinema takes on Charles Dickens’ holiday classic with a visually and musically inventive adaptation.
An avowed holiday skeptic, Aunt Trudy has been recruited to channel her late husband Joe’s famous Christmas cheer. From the isolation of her studio apartment, she reconstructs his annual Christmas puppet show – over a Zoom call while the family celebrates Christmas Eve under lockdown.
But as Trudy becomes more absorbed in her own version of the story, the puppets take on a life of their own, and the family’s call transforms into a stunning cinematic adaptation of Dickens’s classic ghost story.
Choose from 6 performances, each performed from Manual Cinema’s studio in Chicago and beamed to you LIVE!
