A Christmas Carol 2013

November 14 - December 29, 2013 on the Wurtele Thrust Stage
A miserly and miserable man, Ebenezer Scrooge greets each Christmas with a “bah humbug,” until he is visited one Christmas Eve by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. Through a restless night, the spirits show him happy memories from his past, cruel realities from the present and the grim future should he continue his cantankerous ways. With this fresh adaptation, Scrooge’s story of redemption remains as powerful and uplifting as it ever was. Don’t miss your chance to share this perennial holiday favorite – now in its 39th year – with your whole family. It’s an experience they will treasure for years to come!
