Now in its 24th year, Theatre on the Road’s production will be appearing at three locations in the mid-Hudson Valley.

All performances are family-friendly and include a three-course dinner with entrée choice. Victorian carolers will sing at tableside, before the show and during the dinner break, and the performance will be preceded by a reception where guests will meet Ebeneezer Scrooge, the Ghosts of Christmas, the Cratchit family including Tiny Tim and Nephew Fred

This production is a tribute to the spirit of a traditional holiday. Audience members are encouraged to interact with the Dickens’ characters, as they settle in for a fine dinner and evening of celebration. Adapted from Charles Dickens’ classic, the script was written by Frank and Kristen Marquette, and she is also providing her handmade costumes. This is the 24th season the Marquette’s version of A Christmas Carol is being produced.

“Frank and Kristen’s show continues to gain critical praise for every detail including authentic costumes, musical interludes and in depth characterizations”, says Brittani Thompson of the Historic Hotel Broadalbin.
