This is an excellent production of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." The cast is talented and the majestic stage and facility enhance the experience. I look forward to this production every year.

Description

A popular holiday tradition entertaining hundreds of children and families each year is back once again this Christmas season at Drury Lane Oakbrook Terrace.

A Christmas Carol is a dazzling annual holiday tradition entertaining thousands of children and families each year. This timeless classic is an exhilarating opportunity to introduce children to the arts.

Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly old man, receives a Christmas Eve visit from the ghost of his old business partner, Jacob Marley, warning him to mend his ways. During the night, three spirits appear before Scrooge showing him visions of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Future to reveal the results of his selfish life. Scrooge promises to redeem himself and vows to honor the spirit of Christmas with all his heart, spreading good cheer, kindness and generosity to everyone he encounters.
