Minnetrista Theatre presents A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens.
Did you know that in 1925 Ball Brothers Company had an edition of A Christmas Carol designed and printed as a gift for friends, family, and employees? George Ball worked with a designer named Richard Ellis out of New York City to have the book produced. They tucked a little note inside the cover of each book that read:
Dickens’ Christmas Carol has been called the “greatest little book in the world.” We have had this special edition printed and are sending you a copy. You have read it before? Yes? Well, read it again! Read it out loud with all the family around. Read it every year before Christmas.
We wish you a very, very Merry Christmas, and, as Tiny Tim says, “God bless us, every one.”
Ball Brothers Company,
Christmas 1925Minnetrista Theatre is putting their own spin on their suggestion and performing a half hour adaptation of the story, with hopes that their version will inspire you to read the book as a family together around the holiday season. Maybe you’ll even want to create your own version of the story.
