Annual "Christmas Carol"
December 1 - 24
North Shore Music Theatre in Beverly will present its 18th Anniversary production of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" from December 1 through December 24.
Since its World Premiere 18 years ago, this unique production,
created specifically for NSMT audiences, has entertained more than 1
million people, including more than 100,000 school children. The production
will be directed by North Shore's Artistic Director and
Executive Producer Jon Kimbell. A quartet from NSMT's Youth
Performance Choir will be caroling in the lobby before
This original musical adaptation by NSMT Artistic Director and Executive Producer Jon Kimbell and members of the NSMT staff, follows Scrooge through a series of strange and magical journeys, where he ultimately discovers the true spirit of the holiday season.
"A Christmas Carol" marks David Coffee’s 15th consecutive year playing Ebenezer Scrooge and his amazing 41st appearance at NSMT. David most recently played Harriman F. Spritzer in NSMT’S Regional Theatre Premiere of "Hairspray." This season, David has also been seen in "Singin’ in the Rain" and "Cinderella."
Kimbell commented, “Our production of 'A Christmas
Carol' is near and dear to my heart, as it is for many of our patrons
who have made it a holiday tradition for their families. After 12 years,
it is my pleasure to return to directing this year’s production
which stays true to Charles Dickens’ timeless tale. Our adaptation
of 'A Christmas Carol' is truly a musical ghost story with a message
that’s as poignant and heartfelt today as it was when it first
