The Plymouth Antiquarian Society invites the public to step into the 19th century and rediscover Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol at the 1809 Hedge House. This special holiday event will take place during the first two weekends in December, with two unique ways to experience the classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge’s redemption.
On Saturday, December 3 & Sunday, December 4 the Hedge House will be open from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm for self-guided tours. Guests will enjoy readings by costumed characters in six period rooms decorated to recreate scenes from Charles Dickens’ 1843 novella. Vignettes will include the counting house of Scrooge and Marley, the festive Mr. Fezziwig’s ball, and the humble home of Tiny Tim. Admission is $15/adult and $10/child. A family package (2 adult tickets & 2 child tickets) is available for $45. No reservations are necessary for this weekend; tickets will be available at the door.
On Saturday, December 10 & Sunday, December 11, the Hedge House will become the stage for immersive performances every hour between 4:00 and 7:00 pm. Guests will rediscover how the greedy Ebenezer Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man after his past, present, and future are revealed on Christmas Eve. A talented cast brings the story to life in 45-minute performances. Guests must be prepared to walk through historic spaces; seating is not provided. Tickets are $25 per person and must be purchased in advance; each performance is limited to 10 guests.
Also, 45-minute guided tours are available between Monday, December 5 and Friday, December 9. A costumed character will lead groups through the house and share readings from A Christmas Carol. Groups are limited to 10 people. Fee determined by size of group; discounts available for schools and community organizations. Bookings required by November 28th.
