Beverly theatre to hold performances of ‘A Christmas Carol’
December 23, 2013 by Max
This year, the North Shore Music Theatre in Beverly is having performances of ‘A Christmas Carol’ throughout December, which will be celebrating David Coffee’s 20th year playing the role of Ebenezer Scrooge. No doubt the Music Theatre is using a variety of printing services to let people in the North Shore and elsewhere in Massachusetts become aware of this special anniversary.
The theatre produced “High School Musical 2” in December 2008 and then closed in 2009. The following year, current owner Bill Hanney purchased the theatre and brought ‘A Christmas Carol’ back along with ‘Coffee in December 2010’.
Coffee commented that the applause from the audience was tremendous upon his return as Scrooge. He added that he enjoys playing the character to see its progression though the pla,y which gives it great range. It is something he looks forward to every year.
Hanney said that Coffee is able to portray Ebenezer Scrooge in a masterful way every time and always is able to keep his performances fresh from one show to another, and from one year to the next.
Coffee originally played Scrooge when he was in a high school when it was performed as a concert. In graduate school, he was in a radio production of the show and, after college, he appeared in two tours of it
In addition to Coffee as Scrooge, there will be 29 young performers in the show from various communities in the local area.
