“Bah Humbug!” That’s how Ebenezer Scrooge feels about Christmas – until the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future decide to show the crotchety old miser the error of his ways. Together they travel through time, revisiting all the people who have played an important role in Scrooge’s life. And as their journey concludes, Scrooge is reminded of what it means to have love in his heart. This is a traditional retelling of the classic story that includes music and carols.

A Christmas Carol is a heartwarming tale that has endured and delighted since being greeted with critical and popular acclaim upon its publication in 1843. This is a traditional retelling of the classic story that includes music and carols. It is sure to be a holiday treat for the entire family!
