Belmont's Robbins appears in holiday classic at Hanover Theatre
December 15, 2010
Belmont, Mass. — Celebrate the holiday season this year with New England’s largest production of “A Christmas Carol,” at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts in Worcester. Adapted and directed by Troy Siebels, executive director of The Hanover Theatre, this Charles Dickens classic contains some changes and additions to this year’s six performance schedule.
“The Mighty Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ, new to last year’s production, has nearly twice as many sets of pipes as it did at that time, giving the music more breadth, variety, and power at the fingertips of music director Tim Evans,” said Siebels. The show blends choral and pipe organ music, both of which are evocative of traditional holiday carols, in a unique way.
This year’s production contains a variety of talent from New York to Boston. Ilyse Robbins of Belmont, will make her debut on The Hanover Theatre stage as Mrs. Fezziwig.
“I’m happy to be back in my hometown of Worcester,” said Robbins.
Robbins’ talents also include choreographer for this year’s production.
Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 17, 2 and 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 18, 1 p.m. on Dec. 19, and 7 p.m. on Dec. 22 and Dec. 23.
