Little Dickens: The Daisy Theatre
Ronnie Burkett (Toronto)
Dec 04 – 22, 2018 | Historic Theatre [map]
The holiday hit returns!
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.
A raucous, adults-only holiday treat, Little Dickens combines Burkett’s mastery of marionette puppetry, playful songs, and improvisation!
Little Dickens: The Daisy Theatre Presents A Christmas Carol’s unmatched puppetry and vaudevillian details make it a real gift”—Kathleen Oliver, The Georgia Straight
The familiar characters from his bizarre repertoire ring a showbiz variation on Dickens’ tale that’s…warmer and fuzzier in a Christmassy way, punctuated by raunchy asides and moments of sheer Burkettian brilliance”—Jerry Wasserman, The Vancouver Sun
