Seen by over 287,000 people since its inception in 1998, Hartford Stage's A Christmas Carol has rapidly become the theatre's most popular production of all time and Connecticut's favorite yuletide entertainment.
This year, Bill Raymond, currently on screen in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, returns for his 13th season as Ebenezer Scrooge for all evening and weekend matinee performances, while Gustave Johnson will again lead the talented cast as Scrooge for the student matinee performances as Hartford Stage brings the magic of Dickens' heart-warming classic to life in this Connecticut holiday tradition. The tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, the heartless miser who discovers the true meaning of the holiday season after a Christmas Eve haunting, features all of Charles Dickens' beloved characters: Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit and the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Ghosts take flight and soar across the stage, carols are sung and snow falls capturing the spirit of a Victorian Christmas forever warming the hearts of adults and children alike.
The production runs until December 29. For specific schedule of performances or to buy tickets for A Christmas Carol and Behind the Magic,call the Hartford Stage box office at 860-527-5151 or visit www.hartfordstage.org.
