The highlight of every McCarter production of "A Christmas Carol" are the 14 children who light up the stage in a variety of roles, including a youngster who will be celebrating his eighth season with the show – Danny Hallowell of Montgomery (Skillman). These 14 young actors will take the stage alongside the professional acting company headed by Broadway veteran Graeme Malcolm, playing roles including the Cratchit children, Ghost of Christmas Past, and Scrooge as a boy.
This year the lineup features a young man from Lawrence – Adam LeCompte. He’s pictured above, seated in the bottom row, right.
