On Friday, December 12, The Olana Partnership presents Jonathan Kruk, a master storyteller, in a theatrical one-person performance for Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. Selected “Best in the Hudson Valley,” Kruk gives over thirty characters in the story voice and form. Add the musical ambiance provided by Jim Keyes on a portal pipe organ, with bells, harp, violin, and chains, and you’ve got a unique dramatic version of old Scrooge’s story. Running just under one hour, Kruk abridges Dickens 27,000 word opus to a family friendly show. Performing in colorful 1840s garb, Kruk uses only a few props. His sonorous, ever changing voice, along with Keyes’ score, enchants the audience. Participants must pre-register by preceding Wednesday by calling 518.828.1872 x 109.
