The Christmas Angel

Performance Dates

Based on a little-known 1910 novel by Abbie Farwell Brown, this tale about a spinster and her heartwarming transformation into the Christmas spirit echo Dickens and the journey of Ebenezer Scrooge. Our award-winning creative team, Conner and Smith, put their signature stamp on what is sure to become another classic Christmas show!

Spinster Angelina Thomas has long forgotten the Christmas spirit that she once had as a child. Long ago she broke off her relationship with her sister, her only living relative, and now lives a solitary life with her butler as her only companion. On a snowy Christmas eve, she sets out to rid herself of any vestiges of Christmas left in her household, and asks him to throw out a box of her childhood toys. But instead she decides to throw them out one by one into the street below her Boston row house, in an experiment to prove that the Christmas Spirit is just a humbug. It would appear that her assessment was correct, until the final toy, A hand made Christmas Angel given to her by sister long ago, comes to life and takes her on a magical journey where she sees the real humanity, and dauntless Christmas spirit that resides in her fellow citizens.
