  • Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol
    FINAL WEEKS! MUST CLOSE DEC 16

    Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

    Adapted by Jefferson Mays, Susan Lyons & Michael Arden
    Performed by Jefferson Mays
    Directed by Michael Arden

    Tony Award winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife) brings new life to the greatest ghost story ever told. While the heart of A Christmas Carol is evergreen, Mays' fresh perspective on Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the rest will create a wildly theatrical and original experience.

    PARENTS: Due to loud sounds and scariness of the ghost Marley, this production is NOT recommended for children under 12. Children under 6 will not be admitted.
