About the Play


Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol
adapted by Tom Haas
directed by Benjamin Hanna
November 16 - December 26, 2019

Indy holiday tradition

A delightful ensemble of players brings Scrooge, Tiny Tim, four spirits, and all of Victorian London to life on our snow-covered stage for this holiday treasure infused with music and song. In the darkness of winter, we all need the shining light of forgiveness, redemption, and love. Come celebrate the joy of the season and the spirit of giving.

APPROXIMATE RUN TIME: 1 hour and 30 minutes, with no intermission

A Christmas Carol is an adaptation of Dickens’ classic tale that contains imagery that may frighten young children. Recommended for patrons 4th grade and above.

Artistic Note:
“I am excited that A Christmas Carol is getting a fresh new look! Linda Pisano's new costume designs are beautiful and her research and attention to detail lifts this important story in a magical way. We will have some long-time Carol actors and Indy favorites joining us again this holiday season, while inviting some new spirits into the tradition. Additionally, there will be new songs along with our favorite Christmas Carols. All of these new investments of time and love to Carol come from our commitment to keeping the production fresh, accessible and relevant for our community.” –Benjamin Hanna, Associate Artistic Director and Director of A Christmas Carol
