Directed by Amanda Dehnert, Trinity Repertory’s 29th annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol attempts to inspire audiences with Scrooge’s infamous story about the importance of personal redemption and the value of human connections. Unfortunately, this year’s version fails to muster up the right amounts of magic, humor and holiday cheer needed to separate itself from the thousands of other mediocre versions of this story.
Since the show runs almost every day through Christmas Eve, there are two adult casts and four children’s casts (Holly and Ivy). While opening night for the Holly Cast ran smoothly on Tuesday night and contained some decent acting throughout most of the cast, nothing really stuck out to make this an exciting or exceptional performance.
