A Connecticut Christmas Carol 2019

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. Local heroes Mark Twain, P.T. Barnum and Benedict Arnold 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 plenty of Nutmeg State flavor to sweeten your season.

Book by L J Fecho
Music and Lyrics by Michael O'Flaherty
Choreographed by Lisa Shriver
Directed by Hunter Foster
