A Christmas Carol
Think you’ve seen Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol? Well, think again! When Charles Dickens first set quill to parchment to conceive this brilliant tale, he could never have known what an enduring work he was about to create. The phrase “Merry Christmas” itself was popularized following the appearance of the story and the name “Scrooge” and exclamation “Bah! Humbug!” entered the English lexicon as a result. Ebenezer Scrooge, that most unrepentant and miserly of fellows, is made to see the light as he survives a merciless battery of revelations by the ghosts of his own life: Jacob Marley and the Christmas Spirits of Past, Present and Future in this brilliant rendition filled with surprising humor, lush costumes, 26 beloved traditional carols of the season, tremendous artistry, a timeless message and several truly scary ghosts. A cast of 16 actors invite you on an unforgettable journey from despair to redemption in this delightful and thoroughly entertaining adaptation.
