Dickens’ A Christmas Carol returns to the Hatbox Theatre from Dec. 2 to 18 with showtimes Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. In this original adaption of the holiday classic, Hatbox Theatre focuses on how the dream-like qualities of the ghost story aspect of Dickens’ work. Is it “an undigested bit of beef” that leads Scrooge to have bad dreams or is he really being visited by ghosts intent on helping him redeem himself. Audience members, too, will wonder if they are dreaming when they are immersed in sound, lights and projections that bring out these eerier aspects of Scrooge’s fateful night. hatboxnh.com

The Dysfunction of Social Practice Art Installation and Experiential Dance Performance will be held at Kimball Jenkins School of Art on Dec. 2 at 5:30 p.m. Curated by partners Karina Kelley and Bill Stelling, “The Dysfunction of Social Practice” features the art of Zackary DeWitt, Emmett Donlon, Rosemary Mack, Heather Morgan and Meghan Samson. As artists and people come back to gathering as we once did, what scars remain and how do we rebound? Dancers Kelly Diamond, Alyssa Desruisseaux, Anthony Bounphakhom and Sallie Werst will embody the humor, awkwardness and tenderness of those experiences. The art installation and dance experience will take place at the historic Kimball Jenkins Victorian mansion in the heart of Concord’s historic district. kimballjenkins.com
