A Christmas Carol
December 16 - December 23, 2016
Running time 2 hours
"God Bless us, everyone!" Continue our family tradition and get in the holiday spirit with Troy Siebels' lavish and innovative adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic tale. You know the story, you love the message of Christmas redemption, and the love for mankind that the season brings. A Christmas Carol warms the hearts of audiences from the moment they walk in the door, charming over 19,000 patrons in 2015.
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 sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, 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 describes 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.
