The Story

A lively musical adaptation of the classic Dickens tale. Follow along with Ebenezer Scrooge as he is visited by four ghosts; his old business partner Marley, the ghost of Christmas past, present and future. See what happens when he gets a glimpse of his own future if he doesn't change his life. Will Scrooge catch the holiday spirit and save himself in the process? Find out by joining us for this special holiday show with a story so warm it will melt the cold heart of even the grumpiest Scrooge!

The Pre-show Workshop

In addition to the one hour musical, before the Sunday 11a Family Matinee, the audience receives a special treat - interactive arts workshops prior to the performance. Here the audience learns about the original book and how we turned it into a musical. We discuss the themes of the show and how the arts bring literature to life. Then the kids and their families make a special art project and take it home as a souvenir. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms and themes represented in the production.

The whole program (pre-show workshop and actual show) is approximately 2 hours long.
