For the 11th straight year, Theatre on the Road is set to bring the holiday classic "A Christmas Carol" to life during the month of December in Dutchess and Putnam Counties.
Theatre on the Road is the creation of actor, writer and director Frank Marquette, along with his wife and producing partner, Kristen. They have been producing quality shows for both public and private events since 1998.
The family focused show is a tribute to the spirit of a traditional holiday. It allows guests to experience the joy of Christmas as they are invited to feast with the Cratchit family including Bob, Mrs. Cratchit, Belinda and everyone‘s favorite - Tiny Tim.
In scenes right of out Dickens’ classic book, guests are treated to visits from Ebenezer Scrooge, his Nephew Fred, the Man of Goodwill, the ghost of Jacob Marley and the three spirits of Christmas.
