Charles Dickens’ story of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge—who discovers the true meaning of Christmas with the help of Tiny Tim and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future—captures all the warmth, goodwill, and musical memories of the holiday season. Performed by a spirited ensemble cast of actors, singers and dancers, A Christmas Carol features two dozen traditional Christmas carols including “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” “The Holly and the Ivy,” “Here We Come A Wassailing” “Away In A Manger” and “O Come, O Come Immanuel.”
This staging of the Dickens' tale evokes both the chilling poverty and luxurious wealth of 19th Century London as a thrilling backdrop to the spellbinding tale. Every memorable detail of Dickens’ "A Christmas Carol” springs to life in this colorful production–from a snowy set that faithfully re-creates the Victorian period of London in the 1800s, to spine-chilling ghosts and several special effects, most notably Scrooge's Bed, which literally takes flight!
