Each production has its own unique qualities. Performances at the Warehouse Theatre are presented in the traditional proscenium style and at the Coolidge Theatre the audience will be on two sides of the stage. The script used by both casts is tightly aligned to the original story written and published by Charles Dickens in 1843. This music infused tale captures the magic of Christmas in a way that has impacted generations since its first release.
With these intimate small stage performances you will be up-close to the spirit of Jacob Marley, Scrooge’s dead business partner. Not-to-mention, the other clever spirits who guide Scrooge through his journey of redemption. A Christmas Carol is more than a ghost story. There are laughs, too. The huge, jolly figure of the ghost of Christmas present (with is infectious laugh) is sure to bring a smile to every face. Also the story gives us an intimate look into the love-filled lives of the Cratchit family.
Come and enjoy one of the best Christmas stories of all time and join the cast in the final line of the play, “God bless us everyone.”
