Capital Theatre Productions
Capital Theatre Productions supports and promotes talent in New Zealand. Currently touring NZ, supported by the Trust is:
CHARLES DICKENS PERFORMS A CHRISTMAS CAROL – NZ Tour produced by An Eagle Nest Theatre in association with Capital Theatre Productions
Don’t be a Scrooge – reconnect with family and friends and fall in love with the original Christmas story as you’ve never experienced it before.
This production is a stunning recreation of the readings with which Charles Dickens toured the world. Phil Zachariah (starring as Mr Dickens) and director James Adler (the founder of An Eagle’s Nest Theatre) have worked directly from the original prompt copy and eyewitness accounts to create a performance that truly channels the spirit of Dickens, and celebrates the 200th anniversary of his birth.
