By the way, LITTLE DICKENS will premiere for a one-time Holiday engagement at The Cultch in Vancouver, December 5-22, 2017. This is Ronnie Burkett’s improvised version of Charles Dickens’ beloved A Christmas Carol, starring the cast of THE DAISY THEATRE. Reigning Daisy diva, Miss Esmé Massengill, will portray the role of Scrooge, and audience favourite, Schnitzel, will be Tiny Tim. Ronnie’s creating several newly costumed versions of leading marionettes, a new holiday front curtain and backdrops, and musical numbers of seasonal tunes (including, of course, a Christmas themed opening burlesque act). Given the stunning reception given to The Daisy Theatre over four consecutive sold out Vancouver runs, we can’t think of a better place for this to happen.
