Come see a hilarious retelling of Charles Dickens's Christmas classic twist! This show combines your suggestions with the improvisers’ imaginations to create a performance of A Christmas Carol like nothing you have ever seen. What if Scrooge owned a pet store? What if the Ghost of Christmas Past was a Film Noir detective? What if Tiny Tim wasn't so tiny? Come find out and see how your suggestions tell an all new tale of how Christmas can (or can't!) change Ebenezer Scrooge's life!  Each night will be a completely different show. It's a Christmas tradition you won't want to miss! An Improvised Christmas Carol was developed by Randy Dixon in 1985 at the Market Theater in Seattle's historic Pike Place Market. It’s been performed every year since. This year's Connecticut cast includes Byran Thurston and Greg Ludovici of Hartford; Claire Zick and Kevin MacDermott of West Hartford; Dan Russell of Farmington; Laura Manasewich of Manchester; and Matt Saccullo of Wethersfield. MacDermott is featured as Ebeneezer Scrooge.

Audiences are invited to enjoy a classic holiday favorite as Fisher Ballet Productions brings the TCHAIKOVSKY’S NUTCRACKER to life on Cheney Hall’s stage on December 14, 15 & 16. “Little Theatre of Manchester is excited to partner with Fisher Ballet to present what we hope will become an annual tradition at Cheney Hall,” said LTM Executive Director Dwayne Harris. The NUTCRACKER, a classic Christmas Story, is a fairy tale ballet in two acts centered on a family’s Christmas Eve celebration. Audiences will be swept away by Tchaikovsky’s iconic score as the Sugar Plum Fairy, our heroine Clara, dancing toys, mischievous mice, sparkling snowflakes, and waltzing flowers audiences on a magical journey to mystical lands. Fisher Ballet Productions was founded in 2012 by Liane Fisher and has been producing an annual NUTCRACKER since that time in Massachusetts and Connecticut. “Fisher Ballet aims to produce not only a high caliber Nutcracker performance with professional dancers, but also to give local dance students an opportunity to experience being part of a large full-length ballet production,” said Ms. Fisher. “Most of our roles are filled by local dance students as well as local adult dancers. Our Nutcracker brings students from many different studios together to collaborate and promote the art of ballet in the general community.”   Liane Fisher has been dancing for 40 years and has performed with the Royal Ballet, Boston Ballet, Rhode Island State Ballet, Hartford City Ballet, Brass City Ballet, Dance Prism, Ballet Theatre of Boston, and Northeast Youth Ballet. She has performed and choreographed ballet productions for many studios and was ballet mistress at Ballet Theater Company, for the ballets Gwendolyn the Pig and Nutcracker. For many years she taught for Boston Ballet in their City Dance Program. She has taught Ballet Technique and Dance History as a professor in the Dance Department of Dean College and as an Artist-in-Residence at Wesleyan University’s Green Street Arts Center.  Performances of the NUTCRACKER are on December 14 & 15 at 7:00 pm, and December 15 & 16 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are available for $18 - $25 and with a discount for children. Tickets are available for purchase at CheneyHall.org or by calling the Cheney Hall box office at (860) 647-9824.
