A timeless tale of forgiveness and hope enjoyed by generations of Southeastern New England, this holiday favorite earns rave reviews from audiences and critics year after year. The Boston Globe praises the annual tradition saying, "there is no better Carol than the one that Trinity Repertory Company puts on every Christmas season."
In this classic tale of redemption, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve who warn him to change his heartless ways - or else. Directed by associate artistic director Tyler Dobrowsky and starring resident Acting Company member FrEd Sullivan, Jr. as Scrooge, thisyear's production will once again feature lively musical numbers, special effects, traditional costumes and all the magic of the season.
"I'm overjoyed to direct our annual holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, for the second straight year, " says director Tyler Dobrowsky, "It's truly a pleasure to work on a show that has become a tradition for so many families across the state. Due to the overwhelmingly positive response from last year's show, we're going to keep the setting relatively traditional, though we will continue to change and alter the way we tell the story. For example, this year Ebenezer Scrooge will be played by FrEd Sullivan Jr., a talented actor and someone with a deep, personal connection to the material. I can't wait for everyone to see what we have in store."
A seasoned team of Trinity Rep designers join Dobrowsky in making this year's production one that is sure to be a family favorite. Once again, Tony Award-winning set designer Eugene Lee, teams up with costume designer Alison Walker Carrier, lighting designer John Ambrosone, sound designerPeter Sasha Hurowitz, musical Director Darren Server and choreographer Shura Baryshnikov.
