History, humor and the holiday come to life in Dr. Elliot Engel’s "The Night Before Christmas Carol."

Renowned Dickens scholar and author Dr. Eliot Engel crafts this entertaining study that complements every holiday schedule. Actor David zum Brunnen portrays Charles Dickens — and 17 other familiar characters from the ghostly classic, "A Christmas Carol."

Suitable for all audiences, this acclaimed one-man performance is filmed in the spirit of a classic BBC-style presentation.

As Cedric Charles Dickens, the great-grandson of the famed author, Charles Dickens, wrote, “David [zum Brunnen] … absolutely becomes my great-grandfather on stage!”
