Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than happiness. But, on Christmas Eve, he's forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts lead him through his Past, Present and Future. This spectacular adaptation of Dickens' most well-known story proved its staying power with a decade-long run at Madison Square Garden, and a holiday tradition here at Music Mountain Theatre for the tenth year in a row!
Get in the holiday spirit with a fun family musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, written by Leslie Bricusse. Ebenezer Scrooge, who is rich, stingy, and mean to his loyal employee Bob Cratchit, gets a rude awakening on Christmas Eve. The ghost of Scrooge's old business partner, Jacob Marley, pays him a visit, informing him that he is going to be visited by three ghosts: Christmas Past, Present and Future. Will the result be a kinder, gentler Scrooge?
