Dickens’ A Christmas Carol wows at St. George's

"Darkness is cheap ... and Scrooge liked it," Charles Dickens wrote in his famous A Christmas Carol 175 years ago this month and engaging audiences ever since.

Local performers brought the story to remarkable life this past week in their production of the version first produced by CBC in 1990. Near-capacity audiences filled the church both Wednesday evening and Saturday afternoon. .

Here, the Christmas Carol Choir sing the beautifully haunting ‘Let all mortal flesh keep silence’, recorded Saturday with Becca McClure as soloist.
