We present this performance in partnership with Autism Speaks, Seven Hills Foundation, The Arc of Opportunity, Autism Resource Central, Autism Theatre Initiative and Theatre Development Fund.  With guidance from these partners, we have softened the most startling moments of the show, left the houselights at a glow throughout the show and generally created a judgment-free environment where families with small children and those impacted by Autism can attend together free of stress or self-consciousness. 

About the show:

"God Bless us, everyone!" 
 
Celebrate the holiday season with New England’s largest production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.  Join us for our 10th annual production, adapted by president and CEO Troy Siebels and featuring the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ.
 
You know the story and you love the message of redemption, but you’ll never see another Christmas Carol like this!  The show is refined and revised each year, and the 10th Anniversary production will feature more magic than ever before.
 
New and returning cast members tell the tale of curmudgeonly miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who is visited by the ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Future.  This brilliant musical, set with timeless music, colorful costumes and spectacular lighting and scenery, follows Scrooge as he discovers the true spirit of the holiday season.

Jeremy Lawrence plays Scrooge for the sixth year in a row, having guest starred on TV’s The Blacklist and Shades of Blue, as well as worked with directors Brian De Palma, Rob Howard and Stephen Daldry. Lawrence is also known for his portrayal of playwright Tennessee Williams.
