Nationally Celebrated Voiceover Artist Brings Solo Performance of ‘A Christmas Carol’ to Mosesian Center for the Arts

The following press release was provided by the Mosesian Center for the Arts

WATERTOWN – In a month of performances offering traditional holiday shows and a variety of events for every taste, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol will be performed at the Mosesian Center for the Arts in a what is becoming a “singular” tradition. 

For a third season, nationally celebrated voiceover artist Dick Terhune returns to Mosesian Arts with his solo stage performance adapted directly from Charles Dickens’ classic holiday ghost story. In full Victorian costume, this versatile actor plays over thirty roles, bringing to life Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, and of course, that crotchety old miser, Ebenezer Scrooge! Dickens himself frequently presented his holiday novella as a one-man performance, including when he visited Boston in 1867-68, and Terhune continues the tradition at Mosesian Arts. 

With decades of experience as an actor, Terhune’s voice credits include national commercial campaigns (for Little Caesar’s, Yoplait, Great Wolf Lodge, Jackson Hewitt, Google, and Verizon), animation (Transformers) and games (World of WarcraftDiabloVampires: The Masquerade), and audiobooks and narrations. 

The adaptation of the Dickens novel is by Connecticut playwright Patrick R. Spadaccino, who was inspired to adopt this format after seeing Sir Patrick Stewart perform the story as a solo play on Broadway. “I was awed by the fact that one actor, on a virtually empty stage, was able to stir my emotions and paint such vivid pictures in my mind,” Spadaccino said. The original production of this adaptation was directed by Sharon W. Houk at the Warner Theatre in Torrington, Conn. 

A Christmas Carol will be performed on the Main Stage of the Mosesian Center for the Arts at 321 Arsenal Street in Watertown. Performance times are Saturday, December 9, at 8:00 PM, and Sunday, December 10, at 2:00 PM. Tickets may be purchased at the box office or online at www.mosesianarts.org. EBT Card to Culture tickets are available. This production is funded in part by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies.
