BELL BANK PRESENTS

A Christmas Carol

by CHARLES DICKENS
adapted by CRISPIN WHITTELL
directed by LAUREN KEATING

Overview

A Twin Cities holiday tradition

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 a grim future should he continue his cantankerous ways. Charles Dickens’ timeless tale continues to be a perennial favorite and holiday tradition that invites audiences of all ages to celebrate the merriment of the season with their family and loved ones.
