Dickens' timeless holiday fave undergoes a radically entertaining remaking courtesy of the famed Wanderlust Circus and quirky local chamber-music ensemble 3 Leg Torso. Acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, jazz-bos, crooners and clowns combine to create a completely new take on the Scrooge story, though the cranky old gent still learns the true meaning of Christmas. The score is provided by 3 Leg Torso, formerly a trio and now a quintet. Their wholly original sound is an eclectic mix of classical, tango, klezmer, Latin and world music, and their well-known fans range from Penn & Teller's Teller to director Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me).

Senegalese master musician Baaba Maal has been making music for the world to enjoy for nearly two decades. Renowned for his fiery vocal performances and his musical fusion of western sounds with the traditional beats and melodies of West Africa, Baaba Maal has earned immense critical acclaim and has continually reinforced his role as a seminal artist in the world music arena. His work has also extended beyond music and into the realms of humanitarian spokesperson through his role as youth emissary for the United Nation’s Development Program and his outspoken stances on HIV/AIDS in Africa, the growing role of women on the continent and his support of youth-based initiatives to help Africa move into the new millennium.
