A New Musical

A Connecticut Christmas Carol

A New Musical
Some of the most beloved storytellers in Connecticut history come alive for a yuletide gathering you won’t forget. Famed actor and local legend William Gillette leaves his castle on the Connecticut River to adapt Dickens’ holiday classic in the 1920s. Local heroes Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe and P.T. Barnum make spirited appearances opposite Gillette’s Scrooge in a highly theatrical twist on a family favorite. Custom-made for Goodspeed with all-original music, here’s a tuneful, heartfelt confection spiced with enough Nutmeg State flavor to sweeten your season.

Book by L J Fecho | Music and Lyrics by Michael O'Flaherty
Orchestrations by Dan DeLange | Music Direction by Dan Pardo
Choreographed by Lisa Shriver | Directed by Hunter Foster
