Prepare for Christmases past, present, and future as New Britain Youth Theater performs a family version of the holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, on December 4, 5 and 6.
Based on the novel by Charles Dickens and adapted by Rae Johnson, A Christmas Carol is one of the best-loved holiday stories of all time! The story comes to life with Ebenezer Scrooge, the Cratchits, the Fezziwigs, Jacob Marley, the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future, and a large cast creating Dickens’ nineteenth century London. The play stars children ages 5 through 16 from throughout Connecticut—with an additional six teens helping with lights, sound, and scene changes—and it’s appropriate for audiences of all ages. The production is directed by Darren Farrington, assistant directed by Carmine Lavieri, and stage managed by Krysten Drachenberg. Costumes and sets are some of NBYT’s most elaborate.
A Christmas Carol will be performed at Holmes Elementary School, a community space located at 2150 Stanley Street in New Britain. Performances are Friday, December 4, at 7:00 p.m.; Saturday, December 5, at 7:00 p.m.; and Sunday, December 6 at 2:00 p.m. Ticket prices are $13 for adults and $11 for children, students, and seniors. Tickets may be reserved by calling New Britain Youth Theater at 860-515-8115 or may be purchased online at www.nbyt.org.
