Dickens classic coming to Wallkill

Posted

The Wallkill Reformed Church is pleased to present Charles Dickens’ holiday classic tale, “A Christmas Carol” – a live storytelling experience featuring master storyteller, Jonathan Kruk, on Dec. 17 at 7 p.m.

Celebrating thirty years of experience as a Master Storyteller, Jonathan Kruk is renowned for his performances of “A Christmas Carol.” Using a treasure trove of voices and gestures he creates over thirty characters, to inhabit Dickens’ classic. The result is a singular show, intimate, and imaginative. Performing in Dickensian garb, the storyteller creates gripping vignettes with dynamic dialogue. Kruk employs his legendary eloquence, and wit, quickly transforming into Scrooge, Cratchit, Marley, Tiny Tim, and all the spirits.

Jim Keyes opens the show with a rollicking sing-along. His original score blends traditional Christmas carols noted in the story with ambient motifs. Further, he delivers an amazing range of sound effects gleaned from a pipe organ, violin, harp, bells, and a rattling chain.

This special holiday event begins with complimentary refreshments starting at 6 p.m. in our Fellowship Hall. The performance begins promptly at 7 p.m.

Ticket price: $25 Call the church office (845) 895-2181 to reserve your seats Group rates are available.

Wallkill Reformed Church is located at 45 Bridge Street
