4th Street Theater in Chesterton proudly presents Grant Fitch in the Charles Dickens holiday classic “A Christmas Carol.” This family favorite kicks of the holiday season on Saturday, November 24th at 7pm.
Grant Fitch, an award winning local actor and professional storyteller will perform his one-man version of the Dickens tale for one performance only on the 4th Street stage. Now in his 21st year of performing this timeless story, Fitch brings all the characters vividly to life. Meet the loveable Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim, as well as the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge along with Marley’s Ghost and the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Even if you’re familiar with the many screen versions, Fitch includes scenes from the original novella rarely depicted on film.
Grant first developed his text for “A Christmas Carol” in 1997, and it has grown in performance with each passing year. It was the first story of many; he is today a professional storyteller, bringing picture books and silly stories to school kids, and giving dramatic readings of the works of authors from Mark Twain to Edgar Allan Poe. He has been acting on area stages nearly as long as he’s been storytelling. He has starred in, among others, “The Foreigner.” “My Fair Lady,” “Same Time, Next Year,” “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” and “The Drowsy Chaperone.”
