The holiday season is just not the same without a bit of Scrooge! Playing for ten years at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Charles Dickens’ classic gets the full Broadway treatment by Broadway heavy hitters, Alan Menken (Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island) as they reawaken the true spirit of Christmas with a heart-stirring tale of beauty and redemption.
A Christmas Carol the Musical is a spectacular adaptation of Charles Dickens’ well-known story of Ebenezer Scrooge as a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others, greeting Christmas cheer with an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” However, thanks to the guidance of three ghosts, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful, “Happy Christmas!” A Christmas Carol the Musical is an ideal Guilty Pleasure for your family to create a beautiful holiday experience.
