This holiday season, Hoboken Mile Square Theatre will perform A Merry Little Christmas Carol a reimagined version of the Charles Dickens classic, told many times and many ways, but never before like this.

Mile Square Theatre’s new production features five actors who take on all the classic characters from the beloved Dickens story, in a delightful new adaptation by Mark Shanahan.

Audiences will delight in quick-change artistry, puppetry, and traditional music not to mention the warmth, laughter, and tears of this beloved holiday classic.

“Mark Shanahan is an extraordinary writer and director, and we are thrilled to have him back at MST directing his own wonderfully theatrical adaptation of the Dickens classic,” said MST Artistic Director Chris O’Connor. “Mark’s 2017 MST production of The 39 Steps was by far one of our most memorable productions. People still talk about it! Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is my favorite tale for the holidays, and when Mark told me he had written a new adaptation, I jumped at the chance to produce it at MST.”

A Merry Little Christmas Carol is a magical journey of discovery and redemption that everyone in the family can enjoy.

It stars Bruce Warren (Oklahoma! National Tour), Joe Delafield, (Tartuffe on Broadway, MST’S The 39 Steps), Joi Danielle Price (Broadway’s Mamma Mia, Raisin), Kelsey Roberts (Syracuse Stage), and Paul Gary (Florida Rep).

The creative team brings back; Charlie Corcoran, who designed the set for The 39 Steps; MST resident scenic designer Matthew J. Fick designing lights, MST resident costume designer Peter Fogel, MST resident scenic artist and prop master Emmett Grosland, and sound designer Sean Hagerty.
