Two of the hottest stars of musical theater have crafted a brilliant new adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Adapted by Steve Wargo, one of the writers of the underground sensation Triassic Parq, The Musical, with musical arrangements by Dianne Adams McDowell, a Tony-nominee and vocal arranger for the highly anticipated A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, this version of Dickens' classic tale features ensemble storytelling and a score of traditional Victorian carols and hymns. Kevin B. McGlynn, veteran of national and international tours of Forbidden Broadway, Kiss Me Kate and The Captain's Daughter, plays Ebenezer Scrooge in this remarkable production by the Anthem Theatre Company.

Quotes & Highlights
- "My Wonderful Day is one of the wittiest and most pristinely crafted of Mr. Ayckbourn's dark farces."--Wall Street Journal
- "My Wonderful Day finds Ayckbourn in top form--and breaking new ground."--The Telegraph
Nine-year-old Winnie is off sick from school for the day, but has an essay to write about "My Wonderful Day." What better opportunity than quietly seated unnoticed in a corner, while her pregnant mother busies herself cleaning the home of a British television celebrity? When her Mother goes into labor, Winnie's left in the house alone with the celebrity, his mistress, his wife and his best friend, discovering a wealth of material for her essay. The bizarre and increasingly frenetic comings and goings of adults in the weird household where she's a silent observer fuels an essay that shocks her mother, but provides endless entertainment for the audience along the way.
