The world premiere of Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Christmas Carol is scheduled to open at the Emerson Colonial Theatre December 5 after beginning performances in Boston December 3. The new stage musical, featuring a score by eight-time Grammy winner Parton and a book by David H. Bell, is scheduled to play through December 29.

In Parton’s Smoky Mountain Christmas Carol, Dickens’ London-set ghost story is reset in the Great Smoky Mountains of Eastern Tennessee at the height of the Great Depression. Ebenezer Scrooge is recast as the callous owner of a mining company town. The production is directed by Curt Wollan, who adapted the original story with Bell and producer Paul T. Couch.
