McCarter Theatre Center stages “A Christmas Carol”


“A Christmas Carol,” directed by Adam Immerwahr, returns to McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton, N.J.

The family-friendly production of Charles Dickens’ timeless story runs through Dec. 29 in the Matthews Theatre. McCarter’s version of Ebenezer Scrooge’s magical journey through Christmas past, present and future combines period-specific music with 21st century design and special effects.

A cast of professional actors is joined by “The Community Ensemble” – ranging from age 5 to 74, comprised of more than 30 people chosen through auditions from the greater Princeton community.

Audiences will experience an immersive Dickensian environment when they step inside the theater lobbies. The “pre-show” takes place an hour before each performance, where adults and children have the opportunity to meet characters from the play, sing along to holiday carols, and discover sweets and treats before taking their seats.
