A Christmas Carol
Dec 18 - 19 , 2019 • McGlohon Theater
Pricing:$15 - $25
Come celebrate a beloved Christmas Classic, A CHRISTMAS CAROL THE MUSICAL features all the well-known characters: Scrooge, the Ghosts of Christmases Past (Hailey Pulliam), Present (Nailyah Gardner) and Future (Grace Nelson), longsuffering Bob Cratchit (Izzat Monroe) and – of course! – Tiny Tim (Kris Reed). Directed by Qwa Dorsey with Choreography from Yessena Whitfield. Featuring music and lyrics of Broadway’s Alan Menken and Lynn Ahrens, who gave us favorites such as Beauty and the Beast and Seussical, respectively.
Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he’s forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him. The show is a true ensemble piece, utilizing a large 35-member cast of youth actors to play multiple characters throughout. "With the exception of Scrooge, the entire cast plays more than one part," says Dorsey.
