Charles Dickens’ Christmas ghost story is reset in the Great Smoky Mountains in this all-new musical featuring new music by Dolly Parton.

Eight-time GRAMMY winner and one of the most beloved storytellers, Dolly Parton has re-written a legendary holiday tale as a new classic. Red Tail Productions and Paul T. Couch are proud to present the premiere of Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Christmas Carol, an all-new musical featuring new music by Dolly Parton and book by David H. Bell, produced by Red Tail Entertainment and Couch and directed by Curt Wollan. The limited engagement will be held at Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre from December 3 – 29, 2019.

Set during the 1930s in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, this incredibly heartwarming and truly unforgettable production imagines Ebenezer Scrooge as the owner of a mining company town, where his callous greed blinds him to the joys and gifts of the season. As a Christmas Eve snowstorm approaches, Scrooge is visited by his deceased business partner and three ghosts who compel him to see life anew and discover that love is the greatest and most precious gift we have. Dickens’s classic characters and Parton’s one-of-a-kind songwriting expertise are certain to make this a holiday event you’ll want to share with those you love.
