Every year since 2009, before the Thanksgiving dishes are even dry, audiences have flocked to Olney Theatre Center to see award-winner Paul Morella in his bravura one-person performance of A Christmas Carol.  What separates Paul Morella’s version from all others is its faith in Dickens’ singular genius, by sticking to his original text for 99% of this acclaimed solo performance. That’s why our audiences have made this Ghost Story of Christmas an Olney tradition now in its 15th year.
