Join Scrooge on the Salem Trolley as you ride through Salem Massachusetts in this rolling production performed by the Griffen Theater . Now entering into its 34th Season, this humorous & whimsical interactive performance reanimates Dickens’ timeless seasonal holiday classic. Experience Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol with a twist. Ride along with Scrooge on the Salem Trolley as the classic tale is brought to life in a completely unexpected way. Shows sell out quickly and seats are limited. Tickets go on sale Monday, September 11, 2023.
Making stops at some of Salem's (and Massachusetts') most historical places, the setting becomes the stage for an abridged version of Dickens' classic with a twist of humor. Scrooge spends his time on the trolley between locations transforming his own character from a bitter old miser that berates the trolley passengers (with humor) into a jolly, joyful man filled with Christmas Joy.
Much of the performance follows the Christmas Carol story line, but there is a lot of improvised material that relies on the cast's ability to get the audience to reveal information about themselves. The approach of connecting the audience directly with the cast produces a highly interactive and unique experience. No two performances are exactly the same.
There are multiple days and times available, please check the website for a complete schedule of performances.
