Manual Cinema broadcasts holiday cheer directly to your home with this world premiere of a special live-streamed adaptation of Charles Dickens’ timeless A Christmas Carol. The ever-inventive company that specializes in “vivacious hybrids of film and theater” (The New York Times) is creating a new production tailored for home viewing, one that’s poignantly resonant with our current lives.

An avowed holiday skeptic, Aunt Trudy has been tasked with presenting her family’s annual Christmas Carol puppet show from the isolation of her studio apartment—over a Zoom call while the family celebrates Christmas Eve under lockdown. But as Trudy becomes more absorbed in her own version of the story, the puppets take on a life of their own, and the family’s holiday call transforms into a stunning cinematic adaptation of Dickens’ classic ghost story. Manual Cinema’s vivid production features hundreds of paper puppets, miniatures, silhouettes, and an original music score performed live.

In signature Manual Cinema fashion, hundreds of paper puppets, miniatures, silhouettes, and a live original score will come together to tell an imaginative re-invention of this cherished holiday classic. Each show will be performed live in Manual Cinema’s Chicago studio and live-streamed to you at home.
