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!
