The Dickens Christmas Carol Show

In fog-shrouded nineteenth century London, miser Ebenezer Scrooge shuts out Christmas, which he hates. But on Christmas Eve the fearful specter of his dead partner, Jacob Marley, heralds the arrival of the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future — and Scrooge begins a journey that finds him wonderfully changed by Christmas Day morning. This skillful adaptation brings all the well-loved characters and scenes to theatrical life — Bob Cratchit and his family (not forgetting Tiny Tim), the Fezziwigs and their famous Christmas Eve ball, Scrooge’s delightful nephew and niece, as well as the phantoms and underworld characters. Carols interweave the action from Scrooge’s schooldays to the terrible warning predictions of his future. The tree-lit party climax reaches out to involve the whole audience and cast a joyful celebration of the true meaning of Christmas
