    Manual Cinema uses puppetry, actors, overhead projectors, a live music ensemble and multiple screens to tell stories. In “Manual Cinema’s Christmas Carol,” the Chicago arts collective adapted the classic story to 2020. A livestream of performances on Dec. 5-6 will be available through Krannert Center for the Performing Arts.
