It’s that time of year again! Our interactive, dinner theatre version of the holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, is celebrating its 19th year. Although it has gone through a number of cast changes and script revisions, the show has retained its magic. This is the 9th season in the Hudson Valley area of New York and the show not only remains a family tradition for many but enchants new fans every year. Many have seen Scrooge, the Ghosts and the Cratchits from a theater seat but very few have interacted and even dined with them.

This year there are ten public performances at various venues which means there’s at least one near you. The dinner show calendar is listed with the links and numbers you’ll need for reservations. (In addition to the dinner shows we are also performing A Christmas Carol at Murray’s in Tivoli, Mohonk Mountain House, St. Joseph’s Church in New Paltz, and Columbia Greene Community College!)

This year’s cast features the return of Mike Harelick as Scrooge, Jim Keenen as Bob Cratchit and Sean Mahoney as Tiny Tim. Also returning is Lydia Pidlusky, who not only directs the carolers and performs three roles but co-directs the entire production. Andrew Benedict is back as Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas, Jessica Boyd as a caroler and the Woman of Goodwill, Steven Giammettei and Eric Squindo as Nephew Fred and caroler and Frank Marquette as The Narrator.

Join the festivities, which includes a fine dinner, caroling and interactions with the characters Charles Dickens made immortal. And consider sharing it with your loved ones. There’s no better way to celebrate the season.
