A Christmas Carol Sensory-Friendly Performance
Sunday, December 18, 2016
Running time 2 hours
The Hanover Theatre is proud to partner with the New England Chapter of Autism Speaks, Theatre Development Fund, HMEA's Autism Resource Central and VSA Massachusetts to offer an sensory-friendly performance. This performance of A Christmas Carol is intended as a unique theatre experience for individuals and families impacted by autism, as well as families with young children. The performance will happen in a supportive and judgment-free environment, and other accommodations of support will be provided, including a quiet area if individuals and families need a break from the experience, and trained staff and volunteers to assist with patrons’ needs. We encourage all those impacted by autism to join us.

"God Bless us, everyone!" Start a 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. Join us for our 9th annual A Christmas Carol and feel the warmth of The Hanover Theatre experience from the moment you walk in the door.
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, setting it apart from other productions. The extravagant scenery and special effects of our production 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.
