The Original Dickens Carolers, Denver’s premier Victorian caroling company, has performed throughout Colorado and the region since 1986. In 2016 the ODC started offering caroling in the Salt Lake City, Utah area as well.  The ODC originally began in historic Larimer Square and have performed for corporations, private individuals and many fine shopping centers since its inception. You may have seen them as the featured carolers for Cherry Creek Shopping Center’s popular tree lighting ceremony.

Story Time with The Original Dickens Carolers!

We love story time! We tell three fun Christmas stories.

Fully memorized and recognizable by their highly animated and energetic performance style, this elite, unique group is comprised entirely of professional actors and singers. Individually, they perform regularly at area theaters including the Denver Center, The Arvada Center and The Country Dinner Playhouse, as well as area choirs and other professional singing groups.


The Original Dickens Carolers was started by energetic musical theatre performers 25 years ago at Larimer Square.  Inspired by their love of entertaining, they focused on interaction, music and humor to create a professional performance style that continues to charm Colorado and national audiences.  With the continuous addition of new songs and “bits” over the years they strive to present fresh offerings while delivering the familiar and traditional favorites with consistent quality.  Gov’nr, Sebastian, Pip and Felicity come dressed in Victorian-era costumes with a 53-song repertoire memorized in beautifully blended four-part harmony including children’s favorites, standards and traditional carols.

Crowd pleasers such as the interactive (and often competitive), “Twelve Days of Christmas,” “Jingle Bells” and 2-5-minute-long plays; “Jabeez Dawes, the Boy Who Laughed at Santa Claus,” “A Visit From St. Nick,” and “A Christmas Carol, abridged” showcase this group’s ability to present beautifully tender moments as well as interactive humor to a wide range of Christmas holiday events.  In addition to dozens of community tree lightings, private and corporate parties, the Original Dickens Carolers can be seen at shopping centers throughout Denver and the metropolitan area and have added new quartets based in the Fort Collins and Colorado Springs.
