Centaur Theatre Montreal, Matinee performance of "Little Dickens"

"A Christmas Carol" puppet show
(with pre show "Chat up" at 12:30)
Preceded by a brunch in Old Montreal, venue TBA
Canada’s own brilliant and outrageous puppet master, Ronnie Burkett, returns to Centaur after wowing Montreal audiences with The Daisy Theatre in 2018. This time the raucous Daisy gang is getting into the festive spirit, putting their unique stamp on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Faded diva, Esmé Massengill, is Scrooge in this merry marionette mash-up. All your Daisy favourites pop by as Dickens characters to guide Esmé, in their not-so-subtle way, to redemption and the true meaning of Christmas. An adults-only holiday treat!
