The following announcement was provided by The Hanover Theatre:
The cherished family holiday tradition returns to Worcester! Generously sponsored by Assumption University, A Christmas Carol will take The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts’ stage from Saturday, Dec. 17 – Friday, Dec. 23. Tickets are on sale now.
Watertown native Brad Reinking will be featured in A Christmas Carol this December playing the role of Topper. Adapted by president and CEO Troy Siebels and featuring the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ, the 15th annual production returns to the main stage with timeless music, colorful costumes and spectacular lighting and scenery. New and returning cast members tell the tale of curmudgeonly miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, who is visited by the Spirits of Christmases Past, Present and Future.
“One of the things I’m excited about this year is our Bob Cratchit, Mrs. Cratchit, and the Cratchit kids are a South Asian family of Indian origin,” says Director Troy Siebels. “The 1800’s was a time period where England was colonizing India and people were starting to move back and forth and learn about the other culture, so there were many immigrants from India in this time.”
