Catch the holiday spirit with this musical interpretation of the classic tale by Charles Dickens. The ever-grouchy Ebenezer Scrooge greets Christmas with his usual attitude of “bah, humbug!” He detests the idea of being kind and generous. However, Scrooge comes to see the error of his ways after he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future one fateful Christmas eve. Set in London in the 1800s, this production captures both the humorous and touching moments of the classic story while offering witty dialogue and fresh new songs.
