Goshen, NY After a spine-tingling performance in September of Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, master storyteller Jonathan Kruk returns to the Harness Racing Museum & Hall of Fame on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 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 performer, he takes you right in to the story.”

In top hat and frock coat, Kruk, best known for solo performances of these two literary classics, will showcase his imaginative retelling of Scrooge and his spectral visitors, giving voice to thirty different characters in this tale of redemption and hope. 

An awarding-winning recording artist, Kruk has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, BBC’s Great American Train Journeys, and WAMC public radio.  He has performed at many historic sites, libraries, schools and museums. 

Doors open for the event at 6:15 pm. There is limited seating so reservations are strongly suggested. Please call 845-294-6330 to reserve your seat today! Tickets are $10 for Museum members, $15 for non-members and $5 for students.

Author of Legends and Lore of Sleepy Hollow and the Hudson Valley, Kruk is hard at work on a second book, Lore of the Hudson Highlands, as well as a Bedtime Tale app and a multimedia project, “Supernatural on the Hudson.”  To learn more visit https://www.jonathankruk.com.
