Christmas Carol!

Join us at the comfort of your own home! We cant wait to watch Manual Cinema’s Christmas Carol live from the comfort of our own home! Growing up, one of my very favorite authors was Charles Dickens’ and this is definately a classic I want to see preformed. I love being able to share the arts with my daughter who has also taken a liking to the performing arts just like her Mami! I am sadden that we cant attend in person but happy that more people can attend virtually now! Take advantage of this amazing opportunity to share with your family safely at home!

Access Pass is $20 to Manual Cinema’s Christmas Carol, which gives access to a max of 10 people in a family!

The Soraya’s official event page for Christmas Carol

The Soraya brings you the rarest of holiday treats – a series of live performances from the magical world of Manual Cinema. Last here in 2018, The Soraya’s audiences will not forget the imaginative storytelling and spectacular imagery created on our stage. This holiday season, the company takes on Charles Dickens’ classic with a visually inventive adaptation made to broadcast directly to your home. The story is told by Aunt Trudy, an avowed holiday skeptic. On Christmas Eve, during quarantine, she has been recruited to entertain her family with a puppet show on a Zoom call. The puppets soon take on a life of their own, and the family’s call transforms into a stunning cinematic adaptation of the classic ghost story. In signature Manual Cinema fashion, hundreds of paper puppets, miniatures, silhouettes, and an original live score will come together to tell an imaginative re-invention of this cherished holiday classic. Each show will be performed live in Manual Cinema’s Chicago studio in a socially distanced manner and live-streamed to audiences at home. The stream will be delivered by Marquee TV.

Members / donors of The Soraya can attend one performance of Christmas Carol free and receive an extra perk of access to an exclusive virtual backstage tour of the Chicago set on Sunday, December 13th at 5PM (PST). Information on The Soraya’s membership program can be found here:


LA Mami,
