Museum of the Bible Presents “A Christmas Carol” Experience by Charles Dickens

Washington, D.C., November 25, 2019 – Museum of the Bible introduces a new theatrical production of “A Christmas Carol.” Charles Dickens’ classic tale comes to life in this one-of-a-kind holiday experience. Beginning Saturday, November 23, Museum of the Bible’s resident actors will portray vignettes from the story. The performance traverses five floors of the museum, following a Victorian-era guide. The event includes a closing photo op with the cast and holiday crafts. 

Museum of the Bible’s Living History Interpreters, the only resident actors of any museum in the District of Columbia, will appear as Bob Cratchit, the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future and even Scrooge himself. “This holiday tale resounds with themes from the Bible; particularly of charity and redemption from a past life,” says Jeff Kloha, chief curatorial officer at Museum of the Bible. “The retelling of Dickens’ story celebrates the Christmas season by bringing these important themes to life.”

This one-hour performance will take place throughout the holiday season every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until January 5, 2020. There will be two performances every Friday and Sunday at 1 and 3 p.m. Saturdays will feature three performances at 11 a.m., 1 and 3 p.m. Tickets may be purchased through our website for $15 per person. Museum of the Bible is located at 400 4th St. SW, Washington, D.C. 20024.
