Adapted and directed by Clayton Phillips and based on the novel by Charles Dickens, this adaptation of the ever-popular classic fills the stage with a cast of 16 professional actors, lush costumes, stunning sets and puppetry, song and dance, a heavy dose of humor, and a timeless message. Phillips' award-winning directorial credits include directing Kiss of the Spider Woman, Cabaret, and Chicago.

Twenty-six beloved traditional carols of the season are woven throughout this original production of A Christmas Carol, accompanied by live instruments onstage including guitar, violin, and flute. New Hampshire-based Perseverance Productions has been spreading cheer across the country with this annual holiday tour. According to the company's website, "As the British writer Samuel Johnson wrote, 'Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.'"
