Winterfest!

Hartford Stage joins the roster of cultural organizations, including the Wadsworth Atheneum, TheaterWorks and Hartford Gay Men’s Chorus, for the seventh annual Winterfest Hartford celebration. Read more.

The magic of Charles Dickens’ heart-warming classic returns for its 19th season. Come see Connecticut’s favorite family holiday tradition and spend some time with Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, Ebenezer Scrooge, Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future as they bring A Christmas Carol to life on stage. It’s perfect holiday entertainment!

“Round of applause to Noble Shropshire, who as Jacob Marley does some spectacular high-flying maneuvering – and acting – amid more clouds of dry ice that could shroud the banks of London.”

“Beloved and haunting holiday classic gets some new bows and ribbons – and some cool scary effects.” 

“More than a quarter of a million people have laughed, cried and been moved by Bill Raymond’s dastardly, delightful and heart-filled Scrooge.”
