From the Nashville Repertory Theater

A Christmas Carol Preview

As the Christmas season begins, the Nashville Repertory Theatre starts December with performances of its new adaptation of A Christmas Carol. This Dickens story is the archetypal Christmas tale of transformation and redemption– so archetypal that the protagonist’s name, Scrooge, is now an entry in the dictionary. This story’s true meaning of Christmas has a deep focus on kindness and generosity that goes beyond mere light Santa-centered holiday fare (bah, humbug). 

Speaking about the artistic choice to forgo the typical narrators for the adaptation, Artistic Director (and author of this new adaptation) Micah-Shane Brewer said, “I wanted to just immerse our audience in the world of 1843 London and be able to fully realize a big production that encompasses all the color and the nuances and the location and the spectacle…” With original musical numbers and colorful and ornate settings and costumes (see MCR Interview with Micah-Shane Brewer for a behind the scenes look at the sets, costumes, and designs), this show promises to be a timeless celebration of Christmas.

Nashville Repertory Theatre is performing A Christmas Carol Friday December 1–Sunday December 17 at TPAC’s James K. Polk Theater. For tickets and more information, see A Christmas Carol — Nashville Repertory Theatre.
