Celebrate this Holiday Season with Austin Playhouse at Special Holiday Events perfect for the whole family!

A Christmas Carol

performed by Bernadette Nason

Dec 17th and Dec 18th at 7pm

Join us as award-winning actress, storyteller, and author Bernadette Nason, as she reprises her one-woman version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Using Dickens’ own abridged version, Nason vividly brings the holiday classic to life, portraying over thirty characters in one hour.

"We kid you not. This is the Carol to see."

-Austin Chronicle

"Now this is a one-woman show. And Nason does portray all the characters. But stating these facts doesn't fully connect to the statement that Nason is A CHRISTMAS CAROL: narrator, characters, beginning, middle, drama, humor, end, and all..."

-Austin Chronicle
