WELCOME to Chestnut Street Playhouse!
The Board of Directors is currently working to renew and revamp our mission initiatives to create the spirit of community that we want Chestnut Street Playhouse to exhibit. This effort includes creating space and opportunity for more diversity, equity and inclusion in our programming, on our Board, in our audience, on our stage, within our creative teams and for our volunteers. There will be much more to come in the months - and years - ahead, and we look forward to the journey to create the community we dream of being.

Book By Christopher Schario (adapted from the book by Charles Dickens) Focusing on Dickens’ powerful language, humor and warmth, this charming version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL simply and directly tells the story of the redemption of a human soul. The play follows the ever-powerful story of Scrooge, a lonely miser, who, through the help of spirits and visions from his past, present and future, finds a second chance to become a loving, generous human being.
Adapted for a company of six actors, it begins with a child reading the story for the first time. As the scenes are played out behind him, the child becomes totally caught up in the story and is finally invited by the other characters to enter the play as one of them. With traditional carols and English folk tunes creating the proper atmosphere, the world of Scrooge, Fezziwig and Tiny Tim comes alive, igniting the holiday spirit for young and old alike.
