Get into the holiday swing of things with the exciting Boston premiere of Dolly Parton's Smoky Mountain Christmas Carol, a brand new holiday-themed musical with songs penned by the living legend herself! For this strictly limited engagement, an ensemble cast and live acoustic band will stage this fabulously festive take on the season, set to Dolly's specially written tunes. So, dust off your cowboy boots and Santa hats, 'cause it's Christmas with a country twist!
A Smoky Mountain take on Charles Dickens' classic
Based on both Parton's festive feel-good hit Smoky Mountain Christmas and the Yuletide classic A Christmas Carol, and with a book from David H. Bell, the story transports the action to the mountains of Tennessee, where mining company bigwig Ebenezer Scrooge reigns tyrannically. As in the original, Scrooge has a date set with destiny, meeting the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, who hold a mirror up to his curmudgeonly ways.
Originally debuting in St Paul in 2018, this glorious new show looks set to become a seasonal mainstay! Please note, Dolly herself does not star in this production.
