By Charles Dickens, adapted by Michael Wilson

This spirited version of A Christmas Carol puts the ghostly qualities of Charles Dickens’ classic tale center stage. A swirling chorus of ghosts weave through this uplifting holiday story of redemption, magic, and hope as the greedy Scrooge learns the error of his ways.

This show contains mildly scary content and is suitable for general audiences. We encourage you to use your judgment based on your child’s age and maturity level.
