Banish Those Humbugs!
An integral part of McCarter's theater season every year, A Christmas Carol is the definitive holiday show for all the family. Based on the book by Charles Dickens, this celebration of humanity and openheartedness follows the story of Ebeneezer Scrooge, a cranky, penny-pinching business man who's taught to true meaning of Christmas by three spirits - the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future - who visit him on Christmas Eve.
Adapted by David Thomspon and directed by Adam Immerwahr, McCarter's A Christmas Carol is a re-imagined production, featuring exciting stage and costume design inspired by a deep dive into the source material. It will also feature members of the local commmunity, acting alongside the professional cast, really giving the show an authentic feel.
