FALMOUTH – The Falmouth Theatre Guild is presenting the beloved holiday classic by Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”, until December 20 at Highfield Theater in Falmouth.

The Dickens tale of Christmas is adapted for the stage by Richard Hellesen.

It includes original music with lyrics written or adapted from original traditional sources by David De Berry.

The elaborate production is directed by Mark Licalsi of East Falmouth, music direction by Laura Cervinsky of Boston and choreography by Anne Edgar.

The show’s producer Katy Paul, said this version of “A Christmas Carol” is unique in the way original carols are incorporated into the story.
