Maggie Worsdale is a seasoned entertainer leading the jazz band Sweet Whiskey and producer of Traveling Literary Theater™. TLT (Traveling Literary Theater ™) began in New Jersey in 2005 touring the East Coast with various productions involving literature as well as historic figures. TLT moved to Charleston in 2018 producing in tandem with the Circular Congregational Church @ 150 Meeting Street. The Charleston Historic District, alternatively known as Charleston Old and Historic District, is a National Historic Landmark District in Charleston, South Carolina. The district, which covers most of the historic peninsular heart of the city, contains an unparalleled collection of 18th and 19th-century architecture, including a large number of distinctive Charleston "single houses." It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1960 and includes the Circular Congregational Church.

Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, Mark Twain, Martha Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, and Charles Dickens have all been cast in TLT productions. British stage actor James Dyne has headed up the cast of three with Dickens' own edited version of "A Christmas Carol" with over 250 performances thus far. Charleston audiences can experience this masterful reading of "A Christmas Carol" on Sunday, December 9 @ 2pm at the Circular Congregational Church - 150 Meeting Street. 

"We've performed repeatedly in historic venues over the years with audience members telling us that it just wasn't Christmas until they heard our reading of "A Christmas Carol." This gorgeous church in Charleston is our new home -- we couldn't be happier."  - Maggie Worsdale, TLT Producer

What Song is This?

There is something simultaneously exotic, passionate and downright swinging about gypsy jazz. That's the all-strings musical style that guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli popularized with their Hot Club of France collaborations in the 1930s and '40s, but back then, they didn’t call it gypsy jazz. It was simply a small group of musicians led by Reinhardt playing the guitar in his uniquely superb style accompanied by the amazingly talented Grappelli on the violin. The combo was a grand slam.

Boo - Three Ghosts? Bah Humbug!

Since 2005, at historic venues throughout New York and New Jersey, Traveling Literary Theater has been reading Dickens’ own edited version of “A Christmas Carol” to sold-out audiences. Dickens self-published his little ghost story novella “A Christmas Carol” in 1843, but earned little money with the publication. He made a fortune, however, editing the book and reading it in Europe and America as a one-man show. Dickens had the necessary acting chops for the job. Everyone wanted to hear the tale of Scrooge’s change of heart, especially read by the author himself.
