Watch as the mean-spirited miser Ebenezer Scrooge gets a very special visit from the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. In the guise of a ghost story, A Christmas Carol explores themes of humanity, materialism, and redemption. The show celebrates the spirit of the season, whether it be Christmas, Chanukah, or Kwanzaa, and is sure to be humorous, touching, and joyous. This captivating musical is perfect for all ages. It will not be lost on adults in the audience, and children will be thrilled as they see a child chosen from the audience to portray Tiny Tim.
