  • Details

    A powerful story of redemption, Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” has enchanted audiences the world over with its simple message of Holiday joy. Ebenezer Scrooge, that most unrepentant and miserly of fellows, is made to see the light as he survives a merciless battery of revelations by the ghosts of his own life: Jacob Marley and the Christmas Spirits of Past, Present, and Future.

    We are excited to welcome back Clayton Phillips to direct and adapt this year’s production. Clayton’s impressive credits include directing “Kiss of the Spider Woman,” in for International and US tours. He has won awards for directing “Cabaret” and “Chicago” and “Slow Dance with a Hot Pickup.” This new adaptation of Dickens’ ever popular classic fills the stage with first class professional actors, lush costumes, stunning sets and puppetry, song and dance, a heavy dose of humor, and a timeless message. With the music of 26 beloved traditional carols of the season woven throughout this classic tale, “A Christmas Carol” is the perfect way to begin the holiday festivities in your community.

    Our Company, Perseverance Productions, has been spreading cheer across the country from our home base in New Hampshire for several years now. We only know only one way to tell this great theatrical tale--with 100% commitment, passion, humor, and dedication. As the British writer Samuel Johnson wrote: “Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.”

    Celebrate the true Spirit of Christmas with this brand new, original production filled with haunting special effects and heartfelt sentiment. “A Christmas Carol” is delightful and thoroughly entertaining, it is the perfect family holiday event. Filled with beloved music of the season, superb staging, and tremendous artistry, this Carol is a production you will be proud to bring to your venue!

    Audiences all over the country raved about this production last season; countless testimonial quotes have been pouring in, and CMI Entertainment is pleased to represent it once again.

    The cast and crew from A Christmas Carol were amazing to work with ... the performance was top notch: talented actors, detailed sets, traditional era costumes. The cast incorporated a local kids’ choir and the community loved it! This is a spectacular show that delivers a classical, heartwarming tale that put the audience in the holiday spirit.
