Once Upon A CHRISTMAS CAROL

CATCH the Christmas spirit in this rollicking musical adaptation as thirty-two actors portray over 120 characters! When the ghost of Scrooge’s business partner visits him Christmas Eve to warn him of his dire future, the Grinch-like Ebeneezer Scrooge is unrepentant. But then three more spirits visit him that night – the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future – to show him his own life of young love and loss, the joyful family life he’s missed, and the dark future only he can change.
The adaptation stays true to every charming – and frightening – feature of Dickens’ “little ghost story” and pairs it with rich music that deepens the characters and story line and keeps the audience on its toes and always wanting more! In fact, when last produced Once Upon A Christmas Carol won a basketful of accolades from DC Metro Theatre Arts, including a Best of 2012 designation, Best Actor in a Musical for Phil Erickson as Scrooge, Best Musical Director for Diane El-Shafey, and Best Director of a Musical to Meredith Bean McMath.
