The show is performed to the music of the Mighty Wurlitzer organ, New England’s largest theatre pipe organ containing over 2,400 pipes. The organ offers audience members a unique sound, providing more breadth and variety to the production. Listen to an interview with Tim Evans, Music Director, on Behind The Scenes with The Hanover Theatre and learn how each carol in the show is carefully selected.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL, generously co-sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and MassLive, is refined and revised each year to keep the show young and fresh, but it still retains some of its core attributes, which set it apart from other productions. Our production, extravagant scenery and special effects are in line with that of most Broadway national tours. The show features an array of special effects from four different kinds of smoke and fog, to spectacular flying stunts. The makeup and costuming are gorgeous, hear more as costume designer Gail Buckley describe the process and labor of love that goes in to the more than 60 different designs.

The show run time is 2 hours 15 minutes including intermission.

Full price tickets are $28, $42, and $52, depending on seating location. Members, groups of 10 or more, corporate partners, seniors, WOO Card holders, and AAA members receive a 10% discount.
