ROCHESTER -- Christmas isn't Christmas without revisiting the beloved tale of the penny-pinching and bad tempered old miser Ebenezer Scrooge and the awakening of his long forgotten festive spirit.
This ghostly tale of the Past, Present, and Future is brought to life in this exciting new musical adaptation, which runs from Dec. 7-23 at the Rochester Opera House.
Keeping true to the original text and bringing the atmosphere of Victorian Christmas traditions to the stage, it draws upon the themes of time, family, and society's ills to warm even the coldest of hearts.
With a cavalcade of colorful Dickensian characters and a ghostly quartet of guardians, "A Christmas Carol" is the perfect way to get you into the Christmas spirit. This new adaptation has something for everyone, both young and old.
The Opera House will be complimenting the shows with fun activities for children and families. There will be caroling, ornament decoration, cookies, cocoa, and a visit from Santa himself! The Opera House is the place to be for your family and friends during the holiday season.
The show runs from December 7-23. A full schedule can be found on the website. Tickets range from $12-24. Reserve tickets online or call the box office (603) 335-1992, M/W/F from 10-5pm and 2-hours before the show.
The Rochester Opera House is sponsored by TD Bank North, Eastern Propane, Shaheen & Gordon P.A., and Norm Vetter Foundations. This show is sponsored by The Ridge, Studley's Flower Gardens, Great Bay Community College, and United Insurance. The Rochester Opera House is located in City Hall, 31 Wakefield Street, Rochester NH.
