The Company Theatre is pleased to announce its countdown to Christmas has officially begun as the troupe invokes the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come in preparation for its upcoming production of Charles Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol.” The timeless tale of redemption has served as the Company’s signature holiday production for more than 30 years.
Eleven actors from Hingham will be appearing in the show, including Tim Bevens as Young Dick, Leo Buckley as Ensemble/Lost Soul, Ben Cavallo-Smith as Future/Lost Soul, Dave Daly as Present, Matt LeBretton as BMan3/Scrappy, Laura Burns as Sprite, Patrick Burns as Turkey Boy, Annie Daly as Fezzi Daughter, Robert Stevens as CB/Ensemble, Samantha LeBretton as Belinda and Collin Daly as Tiny Tim.
The unforgettable story follows the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge on Christmas Eve as three spirits whisk him away on a journey through holiday memories of his past and glimpses into his future. In one haunted evening, Scrooge sees the error of his ways and repents just in time for a glorious Christmas morning.
The Company Theatre transforms into Dickens’ village with its talented cast, charming storybook sets, ghostly special effects, and beautiful music. Just like Dickens’ novel, The Company Theatre’s rendition continues to attract new audiences year after year. The must-see show is directed by Zoe Bradford and Sally Ashton Forrest with music direction by Steve Bass.
"A Christmas Carol is a masterpiece of storytelling and TCT prides itself on embracing the London of Charles Dickens’ novel. Our production features ghostly thrills, festive street scenes, and a large cast of adults and youth from the South Shore and Greater Boston area. Resident musical director Steve Bass has newly arranged and orchestrated the musical score, featuring beloved seasonal carols. Attending our production has become tradition for many patrons and families for the holidays."
