A Christmas Carol reading at the Phoenix for charity

To celebrate Christmas, to remind people how fun being read to is, to appreciate a classic, and to raise some money for the Red Cross’s efforts in the Philippines, we’re going to do a reading of a special abridged version of A Christmas Carol which had been cut down by Dickens himself to be read publicly at Christmas.

The book will be read by local poetry wiz-kid Aaron Kirby with dialogue provided by local acting wiz-kid Alison McGregor and local “whatever” Joel Barcham… which is me obviously.

So come to the Phoenix, throw some gold coins into a jar, order yourself a whiskey and sit back and have a story read to you.

It’s quite a good story to, so if you’ve only ever experienced it through Christmas specials like the Muppets one (which is awesome), maybe it’s time you experienced the actual thing.

Scrooge!

I read it for the first time last Christmas – it really is as amazing as the Muppets Christmas Carol. My favourite bits were where Charlie started to get a little bit pervy in his descriptions of the ladies.

I will be there with bells on, demanding that we get to do the “Scrooge” sing-along at some point.

Oh come on, it’s for charity, and it’s Christmas, and people could do with a laugh. ;-)

I’ll donate extra just to see Joel *not* take his clothes off.
