Charles Dickens’ family classic comes to life in this adaptation by Mike Webb. Ebenezer Scrooge, the greedy London businessman whose coldness is matched only by winter itself, is taken on a journey across time and possibility by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Bob Cratchit, Jacob Marley, Tiny Tim and all the rest of Dickens’ unforgettable characters come alive –as if from the very pages of the author’s book– to tell this memorable story of light, joy, warmth, and transformation. Studio Theatre’s A Christmas Carol is certain to bring your family a feeling of love this holiday season!
