History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will be home to a unique presentation of A Christmas Carol LIVE by The Shakespeare Sound Company (SSC). This holiday classic will feature a live staged physical performance by six actors portraying approximately 50 characters via quick costume and prop/scenery changes. The free spectacle will take place on the lawn of the New River Inn.
The Shakespeare Sound Company is a multimedia performance company dedicated to education, community, and exploring modern problems with a classical twist. Its mission is to provide affordable theatre for the whole family primarily with radio productions, as well as touring opportunities and live performances meant to inspire, educate, and convict. SSC primarily focuses on classical pieces to revive historical literature to prove it can be fun, challenging, and easy-to-understand. Part of achieving this mission includes partnering with historical venues and local businesses to host events, allowing patrons to not just see history portrayed, but to live it.
Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and picnic-style blankets to experience the show.
