The classic Dickens Christmas story, ‘A Christmas Carol’ is brought to new life with music by Broadway composer Alan Menken and the best performers New England has to offer. Seacoast Rep is pleased to present the time-honored, family-friendly tale of Ebenezer Scrooge as he learns generosity, redemption, and the true meaning of Christmas.
Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge summarizes his feelings of Christmas cheer and charity. That is until he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.
‘A Christmas Carol’ has enjoyed more than a decade-long run at Madison Square Garden, and now it comes to New England and imagined in a way sure to delight audiences through the Holiday Season. Music by Alan Menken and direction by Seacoast Rep’s own Alyssa Dumas
bring Dicken’s pages to life on our intimate stage in the heart of Downtown Portsmouth.
‘A Christmas Carol’ is appropriate for all audiences with a positive message. Younger children may find some ghostly appearances mildly troubling. The show contains haze, strobe, and other effects that may trigger certain sensitivities.
