A staged reading with musical accompaniment. Fun for the whole family.
With appearances by characters from Shakespeare’s most popular plays, this version of A Christmas Carol is an inventive, hilarious, and touching holiday story for the whole family, inspired by the combined genius of Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare.
When miserly theatre owner Ebenezer Scrooge puts the ‘humbug’ in Christmas, he’s transported on a redemptive journey to save his very soul. Haunted by the spirits of Christmas past (Puck), present (Falstaff) and future (Hamlet’s dad), Scrooge learns to appreciate the true spirit of the holiday season as only Shakespeare can imagine.
