Synopsis

This is the classic tale of our favorite holiday miser, Scrooge, who is visited by four spirits, including his old business partner Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Through a series of visits to Scrooge’s youth, to the Fezziwig’s office party, and finally to a future vision of his lonesome dark grave if Scrooge continues his ways, the ghosts show Scrooge the way to embrace the holidays and generosity. This fast-paced adaptation shares one of the greatest ghost stories of all time, and is a holiday classic your audiences will love.

“It is the message of redemption at the play’s end that always has me smiling with tears in my eyes.” – Twin Cities Daily Planet

“Christmas Carol is one of the best traditions of the holidays.” – Star Tribune

“Even though my tree is decorated and my holiday plans are made, it didn’t really feel like Christmas had started. And then the lights went up on A Christmas Carol and it did.” – WFPL News
