Description

For those who think Charles Dickens wrote_ A Christmas Carol _to create a sentimental-Hallmark-greeting-card experience, think again! When Provision Theater’s Artistic Director Tim Gregory and multiple-Jeff-Award-winning director/writer David Bell actually read A Christmas Carol they realized that they, too, had been led astray over the years by the over-simplification and over-commercialization of this great work. At its core, Dickens’ classic is a story of deep human transformation—and the great hope that such transformation is possible, even for the Scrooge-iest of us. This Jefferson Award Nominated adaptation, written by Gregory and Bell, is one of the truest to the original theme you’ll ever see.

Brad Armancost returns this year as the miserly Scrooge, reviving his Jeff-nominated performance as Best Actor, along with a stellar cast of actors, singers and dancers to bring you this moving version of a must-see Christmas classic.
