Step into a world where holiday magic springs to life at Portland Playhouse, the heart and soul of Christmas theatre in Portland. This season, we’re thrilled to unveil a fresh and spirited rendition of Charles Dickens’ immortal classic, A Christmas Carol.
With a new Director, Charles Grant, and a cast brimming with haunting talent, this year’s production promises an experience unlike any before. Join us as we breathe new life into the beloved story of Ebenezer Scrooge (portrayed by Lester Purry), whose cold heart is challenged by the Ghosts of Marley, Christmas Past, Present (played by Benjamin Tissell), and Future.
This reimagined journey through Scrooge’s world is not just a play but an exploration of our own choices and the power of change. Director Charles Grant shares, “Whether we acknowledge & celebrate this season or not, we can feel the enormous energy of possibility and hope all around us. As we follow Scrooge’s journey to and through his own crossroads, we get to wade in our own possibilities and decide how we’re going to live today.”
Expect the unexpected – a blend of the Carol you all know and love, with surprising twists, eerie undertones, and an outpouring of joy and wonder. This production is a must-see for anyone looking to capture the true essence of Christmas in Portland.
From November 21st through December 30th, Portland Playhouse is your destination for a holiday experience that will stay with you long after the final bow.
Shows run November 21th – December 30th.
