Interviews with the Director & Youth Ensemble

A LOVELY PRODUCTION! Go early because the cast interacts with the audience - there’s magic, there’s music, it’s very much geared to children... The part I enjoyed most was Fezziwig’s Party - you felt merriment and joy that went all the way up into the theater’s rafters!
— Jared Bowen, WGBH
The new production at Central Square Theater in Cambridge is as much a fairy tale as a ghost story, inhabited by one of the most endearing bands of sprites in the city this season. A trio of children, cast primarily as the Cratchit family, are sprinkled among the grownups in the show to bring a sense of wonder, curiosity and just plain adorableness to the beloved classic. The show not only delivers the intent of the true meaning of Christmas in caring for others instead of oneself but also the delight of two hours of entertaining spectacle, wrapped in story, music and dance.
— Iris Fanger, The Patriot Ledger
Laughter, music, a seasonal story that's as much as part of Christmas as silver bells, green wreaths, and red bulbs, together with a bit of audience participation that lets kids of all ages join in -- you couldn't ask for a more perfect family outing for this most wonderful time of year.
