A Christmas Carol
“A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens is a holiday tradition at Northern Essex Community College.
Ebenezer Scrooge, the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Cratchit Family, and other Dickens characters come to life in this play, adding fun and tradition to the holiday season at the Chester Hawrylciw Theater on the Haverhill Campus.
The NECC production was originally presented in 1999 as a one-time fundraiser for the performing arts department by now retired husband and wife NECC Professors Jim Murphy and Susan Sanders. The play was so successful, it became a community event each holiday season with faculty, staff, students, and their family members auditioning for roles.
