Following the success of last year’s co-production, New Rep, the Arsenal Center for the Arts, and Watertown Children’s Theatre revive their 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 is the perfect holiday celebration.
