The Playhouse's version of A Christmas Carol combines
faithful storytelling with spellbinding stage magic to bring to life
its familiar story of a sinner given one last chance at redemption by
four persuasive ghosts. Ebenezer Scrooge undergoes a miraculous
Christmas Eve transformation as he views with new eyes his past, present
and the possibilities of the future. As he witnesses all those who have
improved his life — his first love Belle, his kindhearted employer
Fezziwig, his nephew Fred and his heartily abused clerk Bob Cratchit —
he realizes that it's never too late to change his miserly ways. A Christmas Carol's
heartwarming message, hundreds of costumes and thrilling special
effects help to make the show one of the Playhouse's most popular
productions each year.
