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!  What a great alternative to Black Friday shopping and a wonderful way to start off the holiday season!
 
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).
 
The Historic Broad Street United Methodist Church is celebrating its 254th 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. Seats are available both on the sanctuary floor and in the balcony, and seating will be general admission. Doors for the show will open 45 minutes before the performance time.  Masks are optional – please feel free to wear one if you are more comfortable doing so.
 
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.
 
There will be a reception following the performance and Mr. Dickens will be available for signing and pictures.  
 
Mr. Dickens’ 2024 US Tour is being coordinated by Byers’ Choice, manufacturers of the collectible Caroler figurines.  For more information on Byers’ Choice, click here.
