New England’s brightest holiday tradition celebrates its 32nd annual production

An original adaptation based on Charles Dickens’ classic novella, "A CHRISTMAS CAROL" is a musical ghost story following the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (played by David Coffee returning for his 29th holiday season) through a series of strange and magical journeys, where he ultimately discovers the true spirit of the holiday season. 

Featuring dazzling special effects and traditional songs like God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman, Here We Come A-Wassailing, The Boar’s Head Carol and We Wish You A Merry Christmas, this award-winning production was created specifically for North Shore Music Theatre and has been seen by more than one million people since its debut in 1989.
