My girlfriend and I have been anticipating this show for a while now. We attened the 5:30 show on a Sunday evening. Arrived about 15 minutes late to the theater, but only missed 10 minutes of the production. The staff working there was really...continued

Better than expected. There is a lot of effort put in the effects, so it's sometimes a little bit spooky (not scary though). Even my 12 year old daughter enjoyed it, and at this age, they are sometimes difficult to please. Overall a good family...continued

Once again this was a great performance. It seemed like there were more comedic one-liners this year.

This was a cute show. Very family friendly. Was hoping to be more excited about the acting/singing from some of the actors, but the set was great and Jacob Marley was out of this world.

I wanted something more spectacular! I feel like this show was designed to showcase mediocre child actors and would only really be very fun for their parents. But Scrooge was good, and it was funny and lighthearted, and sufficiently spooky when...continued

If you just want a family outing with the children, I am sure that you will enjoy this production as one of your holiday traditions and Dickens' message still resonates. However, as professional theater (with commensurate prices), it certainly...continued

This was a lackluster production with terrible songs. Save your money and rent the Albert Finney movie Scrooge instead. It is about 200% better!

This was a different version of A Christmas Carol...namely because I have never seen the show done with songs...it added a nice touch. Somewhere near the end of the first half I lost interest, but luckily the second half came back strong and...continued

I felt this year's performance was the least good of all I've seen. My guest said it was like a high school show. The sets are tired. the performers covered a wide range but in general it was disappointing I won't go next year.

Took my granddaughter who is 10 to see the play and she loved it as did I. The acting was wonderful as was the creative staging. I thought Marley's ghost was superbly done as was the Ghost of the Future. The seats were excellent.

Fantastic show! The set was beautiful and the actors were delightful. A Holiday Show not to be missed!! If we went again, we'd choose better seats. Even though we had a good view of the stage, the balcony is pretty far up there.

Lovely show. James Carpenter aces the Scrooge role and supporting cast, sets and lighting were a delight . The enthusiastic audience made the show even more of a pleasure.

Could not make the show. Too much traffic and the time was too early.
