Join Us For Our Forth Big Year!
Pennsylvania Dutch “Christmas Carol on the Coach” rolls into West Reading once again! A beloved holiday tradition in Reading, PA for our forth year. This is one holiday season event you do not want to miss. Filled laughter and joy, happiness and tears, Fecho Productions is proud to bring the holiday spirit to each and everyone of you. After a sold-out run during the 2014, 2015, and 2016 Holiday season, the Pennsylvania Dutch “A Christmas Carol”, aboard our Christmas Coach, will once again, this December, grace the Holiday Glow of this effervescent Avenue in West Reading. Last year’s event was so successful that it sold-out a week before the our former Trolly started and ten more performances were added. This year, Fecho Productions is set to present a-whopping thirty performances of this very special family friendly holiday event!
Take a ride back in time as this delightful family interactive entertainment, with a PA Dutch twist, unfolds in and around charming West Reading. The audience starts our Christmas journey at Curious on the Ave as we transpor back in time to the streets of ye olde West Reading Town. Scrooge, himself, plays the surly emcee of this delightfully corny and wonderfully homespun treatment of the Charles Dickens’ classic. With a heart locked up tighter than a cash box, Scrooge, encounters the visits of three spirits at various West Reading businesses, for the chance to open up his heart and relish in the joys of his fellow man. Children and adults will love it, giggling between the comedy and the dramatic twists, as they also get a mini-tour of West Reading.
Our show begins with Ebenezer Scrooge and the Crathchit’s in tow, they start to spin the time-honored tale for the audience. Our show will make several stops at various West Reading businesses to meet other characters and further the storyline. Scrooge begins to find some faith in his fellow man and is reminded what a blessing his life is as the audience winds its way through West Reading and while riding on the coach through old charming Wyomissing as they sing Christmas carols and make merry!
The Chistmas Carol on the Coach in West Reading is the brainchild of producer L J Fecho of Fecho Productions and Artistic Director of Genesius Theatre. Fecho adapted the script from the book by Charles Dickens.
