ACT Presents A Christmas Carol


Attleboro Community Theatre is thrilled to continue their 61st Season with the classic holiday tale A CHRISTMAS CAROL, adapted and directed by David Blessinger (Cumberland, RI), who is assisted by Caitlyn Lively (Attleboro, MA). Though London awaits the joyful arrival of Christmas, miserly Ebenezer Scrooge thinks it's all humbug, berating his faithful clerk and cheerful nephew for their views. Later, Scrooge encounters the ghost of his late business partner, who warns that three spirits will visit him this night. The ghosts take Scrooge on a journey through his past, present, and future in the hopes of transforming his bitterness through true Christmas spirit.
