The popularity of Aurora Theatre”s newest holiday tradition cannot be contained in a mere 10 performances. The run of Charles Dickens” “A Christmas Carol” has been extended through December 23.

Now in his sixth year, Anthony P. Rodriguez is delighting audiences with his compelling solo performance of this holiday classic. Similar to the way Charles Dickens performed his stories by the fireside in Victorian England, Rodriguez focuses on the classic art of storytelling. Using his voice and mannerisms, he brings life to: Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley and the astonishing ghosts found in the greatest Christmas story of all time.

Nestled in the intimate Gwinnett Federal Credit Union Studio, the 90-seat theatre is transformed into Mr. Dickens” parlor. Although a few special theatrical effects have been added, this rendition captures the true spirit of Christmas”the joy of giving. The story is adapted for the stage and directed by Tony Brown.

Tickets cost $15. Performances are scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. For more information, cal 678-226-6222 or visit www.auroratheatre.com.
