A Christmas Carol is a spectacular adaptation of Charles Dickens’ most well-known story, as Ebenezer Scrooge and his ghostly encounters come to life in this thrilling stage adaptation. Broadway heavy hitters, Alan Menken (Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Disney’s The Little Mermaid) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island), breathe fantastic life into the classic tale of A Christmas Carol.
Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he’s forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.
This production contains mild use of language, themes of death and ghosts, and theatrical fog.
