Gerald Charles Dickens as Ebeneezer Scrooge

Gerald Charles Dickens as Ebenezer Scrooge

Gerald Dickens returns to Burlington City, presented again this year by the Broad Street United Methodist Church and we couldn’t be happier!
 
Mr. Dickens is the great-great grandson of author Charles Dickens, and he performs a one-man show of “A Christmas Carol,” taking the part of twenty-six different characters in turn. The performance is unforgettable, as he brings to life all of the meaning of the original story. Not recommended for children under the age of eight (it’s difficult for younger children to understand a one-man performance) so free child care will be provided in our well-staffed and equipped nursery, toddler and play areas.
 
The Historic Broad Street United Methodist Church is celebrating its 247th anniversary this year in December and is the oldest congregation of Methodists in New Jersey. The church sanctuary where the performance will be held holds 450-500, however we will limit tickets to 400 per show to allow for everyone to have a good seat. Seats are available both on the sanctuary floor and in the balcony, and seating will be general admission. Doors for each show will open 45 minutes before the performance time.
 
The church is fully handicapped accessible. There is a ramp into the building towards the back of the church and there is an interior ramp to allow access from the rear of the building (near the handicapped restrooms) to the front of the building. In the front of the building there is an elevator to the 2nd floor sanctuary as well as stairs. The Ladies’ and Men’s rooms are located on the main floor (street level) of the church.
 
Mr. Dickens will be available for an hour after each show for autographs and pictures and to talk to guests and answer questions.  Free coffee and baked goods will be available for you to enjoy after the performance as well.
 
Mr. Dickens’ 2017 US Tour is being coordinated by Byers’ Choice, manufacturers of the collectible Caroler figurines.  For more information on Byers’ Choice, click here.
