About the Show

A miserly and miserable man, Ebenezer Scrooge greets each Christmas with “Bah! Humbug!” until he is visited one Christmas Eve by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. Through a restless night, the spirits show him happy memories from his past, cruel realities from the present and a grim future should he continue his cantankerous ways. Charles Dickens’ timeless tale continues to be a perennial favorite and holiday tradition that invites audiences of all ages to celebrate the merriment of the season with their family and loved ones.

  • This play is, in large part, about second chances. Scrooge gets a second chance to be a kinder, more compassionate person to his community. Through his kindness, and sharing of wealth, Tiny Tim gets a second chance at physical health. How do people benefit from second chances in real life?
  • Unlike Scrooge, who is given access to both the past and future to influence his actions, we don’t know what tomorrow will bring. How do we know if we’re heading in the right direction, or if we need to make changes? Who in your life helps you to decide these things?
