Though the performers had talent, the music & lyrics were disappointing.
This Christmas Carol did not work as a musical.

Description

The brittle cold of a London Winter seems far removed from the glorious sunshine of Southern California, but Welk Resort Theatre plans to “Welkome” its full fury onstage for the Charles Dickens’ classic – A Christmas Carol: The Musical. How else do you freeze away the “humbug” in Ebenezer Scrooge!

The large cast will embrace Victorian splendor while reenacting the timeless story – a holiday crowd-pleaser in so much of the English-speaking world. The emotional sentiments promise to be heightened by the attractive melodies of Alan Menken, composer of such cherished family musicals as Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid. No grouches, please… we’re intent on wrapping the entire family with “tidings of comfort and Joy”!
