Ebenezer Scrooge: A Christmas Carol
December 9 - December 18, 2011
New Life Fine Arts' uplifting musical adaptation of the 1843 Charles Dickens' classic tells the story of the tight-fisted curmudgeon, Ebenezer Scrooge, and his personal transformation as he is supernaturally confronted with the haunting truth of his wounded past, his spiritually impoverished present and his woeful future.
“Ebenezer Scrooge: A Christmas Carol” is directed by Concord composer, David MacAdam who wrote the adaptation while living in England. It was first produced there in 1984. It has been said that Charles Dickens’ 1843 story almost single-handedly revived the festive celebration of Christmas in England. Dickens' originally titled his work, “A Christmas Carol in Prose.” A carol is a song or ballad of joy celebrating the birth of Christ.
Nine performances are being staged at the Emerson Umbrella Center for the Arts in Concord, MA.
