Press Opening Friday, December 11, 2009 @ 8:00pm

New Repertory Theatre, in collaboration with arsenalArts and Watertown Children's Theatre, revives its popular adaptation of Dickens' classic holiday story, which has all the trimmings of a lavish Victorian Christmas. The production offers a feast for the senses, ranging from a pre-show caroling concert to luxurious period costumes, from singing and dancing – the performers accompany themselves on over a dozen different instruments – to ghosts that fly through the air and evaporate into the London fog. For audience members of all ages, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, now in its fifth year, is the perfect holiday celebration.

"All wonderful… but what really lingers here is the wholeness of Lombardo’s vision: He treats the familiar story with respect but makes it unmistakably his own." - The Boston Globe

The performance runs approximately 2 hours, including intermission.
