Tickets are selling briskly, especially the matinee performances on December 10, 11, 17 and 18.  All seats at the Chatham Playhouse are reserved.
Chatham Players A Christmas Carol
The Chatham Community Players keeps their longstanding holiday tradition alive with its production of Philip Wm. McKinley & Suzanne Buhrer’s musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL opening Friday, December 9 and running until December 22. Returning to the Chatham Playhouse, Jeffrey Fiorello of Montclair directs the show, Jack Bender of Jersey City is the musical director and Dawn Afanador of Roseland is the Choreographer. This year’s production will have a “brand new look” to it courtesy of Jim Bazewicz‘s fresh new set design.
This marks the 18th time that the Chatham Players has produced this show. From 1988-1995, the group produced the show every December, and it now produces the show on a biennial basis. This unique production has become a popular family tradition for many in the area – entertaining more than 32,000 audience members since 1988.
With the purchase of a Ticket Package, you can reserve your seats to A Christmas Carol and save $10 or $13 on each packages, and pay NO ticketing fees!  The perfect holiday gift.
In this version, produced exclusively at the Chatham Playhouse since 1988, Dickens serves not only as narrator, but also as a character that befriends Scrooge and walks beside him during his life-changing journey through memories and premonitions. While the script remains true to the original story, the playwright also pulled from letters that Dickens wrote to family and friends. The story of Ebenezer Scrooge has become one of the most beloved of all holiday tales, and this unique production also reminds us that Dickens’ inspiration for penning the story goes much deeper.
