Now in its 33rd year, “A Christmas Carol” dramatic reading will be performed by Joe Plummer Jr., founder and director of ‘Gotta Kid To Feed Productions,’ a digital media company, and Therese Plummer, an actor and award winning voice over artist living and working in New York City. Both are the children of Joe Plummer Sr. of Delaware, who performed the readings for the first 30 years and recently retired.

Dramatic readings were a popular form of entertainment when Grey Towers was occupied by the Pinchot family in the late 1800s through mid-twentieth century. The US Forest Service and Grey Towers Heritage Association re-create these literary programs with readings and dramatizations.
