With holiday music, retro commercials and live foley sound effects, Cygnet Theatre transports you to Christmas Eve 1944 as the WCYG Playhouse of the Air players bring the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and his three ghostly visitors to life. This nostalgic vision of the timeless holiday tale is an original way to get the whole family in the Christmas spirit. Learn More

We generally enjoy Cygnet's productions, but, sorry, this one was just not for us. Boring, cold, sad, just DOA. But the actors were - as always - outstanding. The theatre-going experience is to be challenging, stimulating and thought-provoking. Not boring. We just couldn't care less where that sad schmuck was going.
Quotes & Highlights
- "…[a] tremendously mature and multifaceted portrait of the American…at the dawn of the 21st century…goes to the very core of this country's identity" --Chicago Sun-Times
Pulitzer Prize winning author of August: Osage County, Tracy Letts creates the tale of a luxury sedan, a church pew and visits to a nursing home that form the comfortable round of Ken Carpenter's daily life. And then one night, he awakens to find that he no longer believes in God. This crisis of faith propels an ordinary middle-aged man into an extraordinary journey of self-discovery. This wickedly funny and spiritually complex play examines the effects of one man's awakening on himself and his family.
