The Tradition continues in Concord, NH ...
A Christmas Carol: The Musical Ghost Story returns to the Concord City Auditorium after last year's ground-breaking production. Partnering with local choral groups, a canned food drive, and businesses around the state, last year's production was more than just a show, it was a city-wide event, and we are thrilled to continue the tradition by bringing back this original adaptation to the Audi on December 7 & 8, 2018!
A "ghostly" musical adaptation of the famous Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol: The Musical Ghost Story features all your favorite characters, original music, spooky ghosts, and some unexpected twists and turns! As Ebenezer Scrooge wakes up the morning before Christmas, he has no idea an old friend is about to give him the scare of his life with the help of three ghostly companions. Scrooge must examine his haunted past, lonely present, and frightening future in order to rejoin his fellow man and discover the true meaning of Christmas. This original adaptation by NH native and Jean's Playhouse Artistic Director, Joel Mercier, includes captivating songs, bright costumes, stunning special effects, riveting choreography, and a cast of over thirty actors, singers, and dancers from all over the granite state. Start your holiday season off with a bang!
Produced by the North Country Center for the Arts at Jean's Playhouse.

"Mercier's adaptation perfectly walks the line between spooky and fun. While not taking away from the beauty and importance of the traditional (ultra-familiar) story, Mercier enhances it just enough to bring something new and exciting to the table."
"A Christmas Carol is a wonderful tradition, but tends to end up sugar-coated. Mercier captured the spirit of Dickens' time, when the ghosts were real spooks."
"Mercier retained basic elements of the tale but focused more acutely on psychological aspects of this time-honored story of redemption, cleverly spotlighting a dark and difficult journey that centers around a man who doesn't see a need to change."
