Shrewsbury residents to be featured in 10th anniversary production of A Christmas Carol at The Hanover Theatre

1507939460-a_christmas_carol_ticketsShrewsbury, MA  – The sights and sounds of the holiday season come alive once again in the 10th Anniversary Production of A Christmas Carol at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, December 15 – 23. Generously sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, this is New England’s largest production of the Charles Dickens classic.

New and returning cast members tell the story of curmudgeonly miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who is visited by the ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Future. This brilliant musical, set with timeless music, colorful costumes and spectacular lighting and scenery, follows Scrooge as he discovers the true spirit of the holiday season. Featured in this 10th anniversary production are Shrewsbury residents Carter Siebels as “Peter Cratchit” and Scott Caron as part of the ensemble.

Directed by Shrewsbury resident and President and CEO of The Hanover Theatre, Troy Siebels updates his innovative adaptation each year to provide a new, yet familiar experience, and audiences can expect more magic than ever in 2017. The show includes an array of spectacles from special effects to spectacular flying stunts. The production also offers a unique sound with musical accompaniment by the theatre’s Mighty Wurlitzer Organ, which has more than 2,400 pipes.

A sensory-friendly performance will be held December 17 at 11 a.m., and enhanced audio descriptive services and ASL interpretation will be available at the December 17, 4 p.m. performance. Audiences are also invited to stay after the December 20, 7 p.m. performance for a post-performance discussion with members of the cast. For information on student matinees, contact Kelly Rourke, education assistant, at krourke@thehanovertheatre.org or 508.471.1765.
