introducing the COMMUNITY ENSEMBLE

Click here for Young Ensemble >>>

In our reimagined production, we have cast a community ensemble comprised of about 30 local performers who will help bring the story to life both on stage and in the theater. This ensemble aims to engage and involve the diverse and talented community that surrounds McCarter, creating opportunities for performers of all ages, genders, races, and levels of ability. This diverse and enthusiastic group fills the streets of London, dances with the Fezziwigs, carols at Scrooge’s doorstep, and brings Christmas cheer to every corner of McCarter.
