Some of the most beloved storytellers in Connecticut history come alive for a yuletide gathering you won't forget. Famed actor and local legend William Gillette leaves his castle on the Connecticut River to adapt Dickens' holiday classic in the 1920s. Local heroes Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe and P.T. Barnum make spirited appearances opposite Gillette's Scrooge in a highly theatrical twist on a family favorite. Custom-made for Goodspeed with all-original music, here's a tuneful, heartfelt confection spiced with enough Nutmeg State flavor to sweeten your season.

Scrooge/William Gillette is played by Lenny Wolpe. Bob Cratchit is played by Matt Gibson. The Ghosts are played by Michael Thomas Holmes. Making his Goodspeed debut as Tiny Tim is Connecticut native Robert Berson. The ensemble includes Samantha Bruce. Joining her will be Mark DiConzo, Patrick Graver, Lee Harrington, Celeste Rose, Jeff Sears, and Daisy Wright.
