Grab your family or a group of friends and join us for this holiday trip!  We’ll be traveling with VIP Tour & Charters from the Wells Park & Ride, to North Shore Music Theater in Beverly, MA as New England’s brightest holiday tradition celebrates its 31st annual production! An original adaptation based on Charles Dickens’ classic novella, A CHRISTMAS CAROL is a musical ghost story following the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge through a series of strange and magical journeys, where he ultimately discovers the true spirit of the holiday season. Featuring dazzling special effects and traditional songs like God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman, Here We Come A-Wassailing, The Boar’s Head Carol, and We Wish You A Merry Christmas, this award-winning production was created specifically for North Shore Music Theatre and has been seen by more than one million people since its debut in 1989.

After the matinee, we’ll travel via coach to a nearby restaurant to grab some dinner (on your own).  We plan to be back in Wells by 8 pm.  We have limited tickets; register early so you don’t miss out!  Course fee includes bus transportation and ticket to the show.
