Hartford Stage to Host 15th Annual Community Night Performance of A Christmas Carol
Hartford Stage will host its annual Community Night Performance of A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story of Christmas on Wednesday, November 29, at 7:30 pm. The performance will be attended by approximately 485 children and adults from 21 local community organizations.
Hartford Stage has held this free performance for the past 14 years, and it has grown into a favorite Hartford holiday tradition. The event is a joyous celebration – often introducing children and young adults to live theatre for the first time. The audience is invited to meet and mingle with the cast of the play immediately following the performance.
“This special performance embodies the true meaning of the holiday season for all of us at Hartford Stage,” said Michael Stotts, Managing Director of Hartford Stage. “There is no better way to get into the holiday spirit than seeing this audience smile from ear to ear as they are exiting the theatre, having marveled at the flying ghosts and been moved by the classic story. We are delighted to welcome so many young people from all over Hartford to our theatre, many for the first time.”
