A Community Carol
December 17, 2020 | 7:30 PM
A recorded version will be available through Monday, December 21 at 7:30 pm.
Inspired by Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
Collectively Created in Community
On a quiet winter’s night, the cast of Hartford Stage’s annual A Christmas Carol has Zoomed together to read the famous story in honor of what would have been the 23rd season. But, as the spine of the book cracks open, the cold wind sweeps in, the lights flicker, the Wi-Fi is unstable and the spirits that haunt its pages guide us on a journey through a story we thought we knew so well.
Hartford Stage presents A Community Carol, a virtual storytelling experience adapted and directed by Rachel Alderman and created in partnership with our beloved returning Christmas Carol cast members, local artists, Hartford neighbors and area theater students.
