The Concord-based theater company’s powerfully orchestrated musical retelling of the radical, Christmas-Eve transformation of ageing Ebenezer Scrooge—the “Bah-humbug”-ing miser who hates Christmas—has become a New England tradition, gripping and inspiring audiences since 1987. The show features a talented cast complete with a small orchestra, colorful sets, costumes and special effects that will lift audiences back to a long-ago, wintry Victorian London for Scrooge’s unforgettable encounter with the Christmas Spirit. The retelling of Scrooge’s unhappy past and present preoccupations, with predictions of his woeful future, is interwoven with original songs by Concord composer and playwright David MacAdam as well as with well-known Christmas carols, including “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” written by Boston’s own Phillips Brooks.
