Phantasmagoria’s acclaimed adaptation of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol, A Ghost Story of Christmas” returns to the Athens Theatre
In celebration of the 2019 Holiday Season, Phantasmagoria is proud to be returning to the Athens Theatre and presenting their portrayal of what is perhaps the most well-known and dearly-loved ghost story of all time, Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol, A Ghost Story Of Christmas.”
Phantasmagoria will swoop onto DeLand’s historic stage on December 18th, directly following another successful tour of sold out performances in Orlando, Atlanta, Baltimore, Ocala, Deland, and Eustis. This critically acclaimed Victorian Performance Troupe, which Good Day Atlanta called “one of the most unique theater troupes in the country,” has found a way to make their spooky-niche-genre mesh perfectly with the warmth of the holidays.Their signature tapestry of movement, dance, puppetry, projections, music, and storytelling brings this famous ghost story to life in a way you have never seen before!
When “A Christmas Carol” was first published in 1843, it immediately became a Christmas classic, and today (176 years later) it remains a tradition for many people—truly one of the most beloved ghost stories of the last few centuries—and now Phantasmagoria is giving Central Florida a whole new way to enjoy this immortal story.
