The 2015 National Tour of A Christmas Carol will travel 9,500 miles to 16 different venues in New Hampshire, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Alabama, Texas, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Florida, Missouri and Colorado! Over 16,000 people will attend this production from November 25 to December 23, 2015.

Reviews from last year’s production of A Christmas Carol hailed the show for its vitality and humor. “I didn’t realize A Christmas Carol was so funny… and truly scary at times!” was the typical response. Our original script (performed only by our company) was first written in a contemporary setting, and later translated back into Dickensian 1840s London. The result is a tale set in A Christmas Carol’s recognizable 1840s London with language that is vital and accessible to the modern ear. 12’x24′ sliding projections assist with seamless transitions between scenes, providing moving landscapes that pull viewers into the characters’ world, creating a cinematic experience for a theatrical event.

A powerful story of redemption, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol has enchanted audiences the world over with its simple message of Holiday joy. Ebenezer Scrooge, that most unrepentant and miserly of fellows, is made to see the light as he survives a merciless battery of revelations by the ghosts of his own life: Jacob Marley and the Christmas Spirits of Past, Present, and Future.

With the music of 26 beloved traditional carols of the season woven throughout this classic tale, this new adaptation of Dickens’ ever popular classic fills the stage with first class professional actors, lush costumes, stunning sets and puppetry, song and dance, a heavy dose of humor, and a timeless message.

Audiences all over the country raved about this production last season:

The cast and crew from A Christmas Carol were amazing to work with… the performance was top notch: talented actors, detailed sets, traditional era costumes. The cast incorporated a local kids’ choir and the community loved it! This is a spectacular show that delivers a classical, heartwarming tale that put the audience in the holiday spirit.

…Amanda Horton, Reynolds Performance Hall, UCA

The best ever, a new twist on an old classic… Our biggest show and the best crew ever!

… The Villages, Florida

The show was Spectacular! Acting and singing were incredible, and the sound was perfectly balanced … moving the production with perfect motion. Well-delivered show and a solid production.

… Chad Armel, Greensburg Happenings
