Little Dickens: The Daisy Theatre
Ronnie Burkett (Toronto)
Dec 5 – 22, 2017 | Ages 16+ | Historic Theatre [map link]
In Ronnie Burkett’s Little Dickens, the cast of The Daisy Theatre take on the beloved holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, in the merriest marionette mash-up ever. Faded Daisy diva, Esmé Massengill, plays the role of miserly, drunken, bitter Esmé Scrooge, encountering all your Daisy favourites (as Dickens’ familiar characters!) on her journey to redemption.
The draw: A raucous, adults-only holiday treat, Little Dickens features The Daisy Theatre’s most iconic and beloved character, Schnitzel, as Tiny Tim in a special premiere event for The Cultch.
It’s some of the funniest, most brilliant theatre you’ll ever be lucky enough to see” — The Province
Burkett delivers hilarity and vulgarity, catharsis and pathos, all via papier-mâché.” – Andrea Warner, The Georgia Straight
