A Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens and adapted for the stage by Brenden and Wynter Elwood
A Christmas Carol, is returning for its twelfth run, with The Elwood’s adaptation coming to life on our stage for the third year. A Christmas Carol is a heartwarming and timeless story of joyful redemption. Ebenezer Scrooge, who we meet at the height of his wealth and success, has turned into a bitter, lonely, old miser. His only companion, apart from his tired and meek servant, Bob Cratchit, is his cold dark spirit; that is, until the spirit world, led by his former business partner, Marley, forces him to see who he was before his success, who he has since become and who he could be.
This wonderful holiday play for all ages has earned a special place in the hearts of our audiences with sold out performances throughout the run of the show. Don’t be a humbug! Join us for this festive, holiday tradition!
