An imaginative take on a magical favorite.
Experience Charles Dickens’ timeless tale about a sinner given one last chance at redemption in an adaptation that’s new to Playhouse audiences! In the style of Dickens himself — who joyously gave public performances of his beloved work — one actor takes the stage in an intimate tour de force to tell the story of Ebenezer Scrooge. The miserly banker, who famously hates the holidays, undergoes a miraculous transformation when four ghosts visit him one fateful Christmas Eve. Until it is safe to bring back the full ensemble for our annual production, we invite you to celebrate the spirit of the holidays with this imaginative take on a classic tale.

We anticipate the performance to be approximately 75 – 80 minutes, with no intermission. Due to the changed structure and length, this adaptation is suitable for audiences ages 8 and up.
