One Man - One Hour- A Full Season of Holiday Spirit(s) The Play This one-act, one-hour, solo stage adaptation of A Christmas Carol is enacted by Dickens himself, and is based on a condensed version of the novel that he used while on the second of his historic reading tours of the United States. The Story Through an unexpected turn of events, Charles Dickens' American Reading Tour in 1867 is off to a 'rough' start. However, Mr. Dickens -- always the consummate showman -- triumphantly proclaims that he will deliver what he has promised to present! By changes of voice, gesture and expression, he peoples the stage with a throng of characters from his classic Christmas tale and recreates, with improvised wit and charm, the familiar journey of Ebenezer Scrooge -- an embittered, lonely, old miser, who (with the help of three spirits) finds a second chance to become a generous, caring human being. What sets this fresh, new adaptation apart is its ability to rely on the power of the text -- shared simply, directly and intimately through great storytelling.

CHRIS PINNELLA'S HOLIDAY SHOW Doors open at 6:00pm for dinner. Reservations are suggested. Described by many as Michael Buble meets Josh Groban, Pinnella's live concerts incorporate his multi-faceted talents, especially his aptitude for creating energetic and emotionally driven performances which have garnered him an extremely diverse legion of fans, ranging from young to old. "The most important thing for me, as a performer, is to make the audience feel just as emotionally involved and connected as I am to the songs I am singing", Pinnella says, "I've always been drawn to big singers, powerful lyrics, and beautiful melodies. Luciano Pavorotti and John Raitt to Tony Bennett, Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban have all had a great influence on my voice and ultimately my overall sound as an artist." In just under 2 years, Chris has produced 2 sold-out solo engagments at the 540-seat Algonquin Arts Theatre in New Jersey & will be returning there in February for a 3rd time. He has also played such prestigious NYC venues as Birdland, The Rainbow Room, The Exploreres Club, the Allen Room at Jazz! At Lincoln Center, & most recently 54 Below to critical acclaim. Pinnella has also played the 200-seat McLoone's Supper Club in Asbury Park, NJ to packed houses 9-times to date & will be returning for his 10th concert this October. He also frequently performs around the world with the platinum-selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra, collaborating both onstage and in the recording studio as one of thier lead vocalists.
