Since the Newton Nomadic Theater began three years ago we’ve brought live theater to nine of Newton’s thirteen villages – but never to West Newton.
Coming up in December we will stage a wonderfully unique series of performances of A Christmas Carol at the beautifully restored, historic Allen House in West Newton.
On the weekend afternoons of Dec 17, 18, every hour we’ll lead a small group of 15 guests through the house. In each room, scenes of the Dickens classic will unfold with the guests being right in the middle of action. Each hour long show will end with hot apple cider and snacks, just as the next group is getting ready for the start of their show.
We’re particularly excited about this one. Normally because of the traveling nature of our theater we limit ourselves to small cast (2-5) plays. For this one we’ll have a cast of 12 spread throughout the Allen House.
This show will be aimed at and priced for family audiences. Ticketing and details aren’t all worked out but join the Newton Nomadic Theater mailing list and we’ll let you know as soon as we have them.
In the meantime, we’re still scouting for locations for future shows in Nonantum, Chestnut Hill, and Thompsonville
