A Christmas Carol chains 2 copy.jpg
Tuesday, 17 December 2019,  7:30 -  9:30



Coming to Newry, on 17 December, at the Sean Hollywood Arts Centre, actor Neil McGarry’s  stunning one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol .

Directed by Ross MacDonald and created under the auspices of The Bay Colony Shakespeare Company, McGarry’s performance was named “Best Of Boston” by critic Jules Becker and won "Best Solo Performance of 2014” from the Independent Reviewers of New England. 

Using only Dickens’ original text, McGarry delivers a riveting performance of the holiday classic. Fully staged, complete with dancing, this one-man tour de force has left critics and audiences in the U.S. and across Europe laughing and crying with joy – and rightly so. Simultaneously moving and entertaining, the result is a kaleidoscope of action, humour, and language delivered with a simplicity that disarms and touches the heart.


McGarry comes to Newry for the first time, performing at the Sean Hollywood Arts Centre on 17  December at 7:30 pm. For tickets, please call the box office at  028 3031 3180.

“… deeply moving... one of the most artistic, creative and energetic performances of the Boston theater season... an early Christmas gift I will long remember” – Dr. Al Chase, White Rhino Report 

“… extraordinary on many counts but one especially: his characters are all so sincere and innocently drawn, that you give yourself over to the story like a child … a magical alchemy absorbs and involves the audience and holds them spellbound” – Beverly Creasey, Boston Arts Review


“The performance … broke my heart and renewed it … captivating, funny and thought-provoking. I will see this again and recommend it for all ages to experience” - Jessica Holcomb, audience member
