For the past 30 Decembers, veteran solo performer, John D. Huston has packed his trunk, grown his beard and trundled off to towns and cities recreating the tours and performances of Victorian author, Charles Dickens to full houses and standing ovations.

Like his 19th century counterpart, Huston performs A Christmas Carol narrating and playing all the characters from Scrooge to Tiny Tim using a remarkable range of accents, and body language. Barnstorming across the country, he performs in theatres; historic buildings and private homes. His astonishing tour de force presentation has been acclaimed as “mesmerizing,” “powerful” and “Christmas magic” by reviewers across the country.
