A Christmas Carol


“Oh! but he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner!”
A Christmas Carol

The ultimate tale of transformation, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol transports miserly Ebenezer Scrooge high above the streets of Victorian London, where Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future haunt his dreams…accomplishing, in one fateful night, what a lifetime of grasping and greed could not do: the warming of his cold, cold heart. Join a holiday tradition beloved by families and friends of all ages!
