New Life Fine Arts Musical Theater to Present Ebenezer Scrooge: A CHRISTMAS CAROL,

December 9-18 at The Groton-Dunstable Performing Arts Center


A delightful orchestrated musical adaptation of the 1843 Charles Dickens story about the Christmas-Eve transformation of ageing Ebenezer Scrooge—the “Bah-humbug”-ing miser who hates Christmas.

“Ebenezer Scrooge: A Christmas Carol,” is directed by the Concord, MA composer, playwright and pastor, David MacAdam, who has led New Life Fine Arts Musical Theater for twenty-nine years. David MacAdam and tenor Glenn Gray from Sudbury, have teamed up in musical theater in Concord for nearly three decades.

The show features a gifted cast and crew of over one-hundred complete with a small orchestra, colorful sets, costumes and special effects bringing the audience back to a long-ago winter in Victorian London for Scrooge’s encounter with the Christmas Spirit.

The retelling of Scrooge’s unhappy past and present with predictions of his sorrowful future is a powerful story of redemption. NLFA has had success over the past three decades in bringing 10’s of thousands to hear the gospel message through the dramatic retelling of the transformation of Scrooge. Many lives have been touched and encouraged through this musical and many have turned like Scrooge to put their trust in the One who is The Light of the world and came in the bleakest of times to rescue men.
