A CHRISTMAS CAROL PRESENTED BY JONATHAN KRUK
Goshen NY – After a spine-tingling performance in October of Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” master storyteller Jonathan Kruk returns to the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame on Thursday, December 12, 2019 to bring to life ”A Christmas Carol,” the classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge by Charles Dickens. “We just couldn’t wait to have him back,” said Museum director Janet Terhune. “He is such a dynamic and entertaining performer.”
Best known for his solo performances of these two literary classics, in top hat and frock coat, Kruk will showcase his imaginative depiction of Scrooge and his special visitors, giving voice to thirty different characters in this tale of redemption and hope.
Composer Jim Keyes collaborates with Kruk’s solo performance with original music complete with melodies, atmospheric effects, character motifs and special pipe organ effects.
An awarding-winning recording artist, Jonathan Kruk was selected “Best Storyteller in the Hudson Valley” and has been featured on the TODAY Show, the Travel Channel, ABC Good Morning America, CBS Sunday Morning, the BBC, the National Geographic Channel, and WHUD and WAMC radio. He has performed at many historic sites, libraries, schools and museums. Kruk is author of “Legends and Lore of Sleepy Hollow and the Hudson Valley,” “Lore of the Hudson Highlands” and a Bedtime Tale app. Kruk’s books and CDs will be discounted and available for purchase at the shows at the Museum.
