This holiday season, Vanessa Leuck, Ethan Popp and their company Broadway on the North Fork bring back their one-man immersive adaptation of Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” — this time to Shelter Island’s historic Ram’s Head Inn for one night only, Saturday, December 10. A three-hour experience, the audience will enjoy a three-course dinner while witnessing this epic tale in an all-new telling. The Ram’s Head Inn reopened in 2022 under the new ownership and direction of Aandrea Carter.

The production premiered at First & South Bar & Restaurant in Greenport as an outdoor event in December 2020, amid COVID-19 restrictions. It garnered nine 2021 Broadway World Long Island Awards.

Returning for this year’s production as the show’s storyteller is acclaimed New England actor Scott H. Severance, who has starred as Scrooge in the national tour of the production for the last six years. Severance’s regional credits include Tevye in “Fiddler on the Roof,” Harold in “The Full Monty,” King Triton in “The Little Mermaid” and Edna in “Hairspray.” His film credits include “Fever Pitch” starring Drew Barrymore and “Clear History” with Larry David.

Inspired by the classic novella by Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol” features a book written by Severance with additional material by Outer Critics Circle Honoree and Drama Desk Award-nominee Vanessa Leuck and Grammy, Olivier and two-time Tony Award-nominee Ethan Popp. Leuck provides the production design, and Popp directs the production.

The festive holiday celebration combines a decadent, three-course meal with one man’s singular retelling of a tale he’s intimately familiar with, 50 years to the day after Ebenezer Scrooge’s holiday redemption

“Since conceptualizing the idea of Broadway on the North Fork after the New York theater industry shut down in March 2020, and with safety at the forefront of our minds, we’ve been committed to finding a way to bring, year-round, high-quality theatrical entertainment to the North Fork of Long Island,” Leuck and Popp said in a joint statement. “We’re excited to partner this year with Aandrea and the team at The Ram’s Head Inn, a venue known for their incredible fare and creating high-quality, themed events throughout the year, to present this elegant retelling of Dicken’s classic holiday tale with Broadway on the North Fork’s signature twist.”

“A Christmas Carol” will be presented on Saturday, December 10, at 6:30 p.m. at the Ram’s Head Inn, 108 S Ram Island Drive, Shelter Island Heights. Tickets are $125. Reservations and further information are available at theramsheadinn.com.
