Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre presents A Christmas Carol, Oy! Hanukkah, Merry Kwanzaa
An adaptation of Dickens' classic with Old World accents and New World inclusiveness. A surprising and delightful blend of English, Jewish, African, American and Czech winter rituals, customs and holiday songs are woven into the familiar story. Adaptor and director, Vít Hořejš, operates the whole cast of puppets – over three dozen marionettes ranging in size from four to twenty-four inches as well as found objects and toys as a live chorus performs Czech, English, Hebrew, Swahili and Spanish songs.
