A Commedia Christmas Carol - One Week Only!

Do not neglect to show kindness to strangers; for, in this way, some, without knowing it, have had angels as their guests. - Christian New Testament

Bah Hum Bug!  Ebenezer Scrooge is in town for one more week in the Faction of Fools' adaptation of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol now through December 22 at Elstad Auditorium at Gallaudet University.  Hurry, get your ticket, for even those non-believers will sure to be enlightened.  

Scrooge, played by Paul Reisman, is performed with perfect grace, shrewdness and lessons for all just in time for Christmas.  And if the mask fits, wear it!  "Masks" off to Tara Cariaso and Aaron Elson of Waxing Masks of Glen Burnie, MD.  The mask created for Scrooge is perfection as are all of the other masked fools on stage.  The stage is set with London fog scenery and brilliant costumes adorned on actors with flawless English diction.  Writer, Director and Choreographer/Fools' Founder, Matthew Wilson, creates a whimsical journey through the tormented soul of Scrooge with a lively cast of maqueraders and "ghosts" from Christmas past, present and future that illuminate the stage.  The Fool's Christmas Carol is energetic and cleansing for every soul with a quiet message to connect anywhere and everywhere there is love.  For $25 tickets, use promotional code BUONNATALE, a gift to CiaoDC followers from our friends at Faction of Fools.

Love and Light this Holiday Season!
