By Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort
Directed by Matt Hovde
December 5 - January 3, 2014 (Press Night is Wednesday, December 10; Opening Night is Thursday, December 11)

In an unprecedented partnership, Goodman Theatre and The Second City join forces to present “comedy gold” (bePortland) with the holiday send-up Twist Your Dickens, Or Scrooge You! by former The Colbert Report writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort. Directed by Artistic Director of The Second City Training Center Matt Hovde, this “riotous havoc” (Los Angeles Times) finds Scrooge (Francis Guinan) and Tiny Tim (Sayjal Joshi) hopelessly mixed up with characters from the Peanuts holiday special, the Island of Misfit Toys and even Little Orphan Annie, all in the Second City’s trademark improvisational style. The cast also includes Frank Caeti as the Ghost of Christmas Past; Peter Gwinn as Jacob Marley; Beth Melewski as the Ghost of Christmas Present; Robyn Scott as Mrs. Cratchit; and Tim Stoltenberg as Bob Cratchit. Audiences can also expect some famous faces to drop by for surprise cameo appearances.
