A holiday tradition not to be missed. Scrooge is a mix of humor with a humble spirit.

Even balcony seats are good. At the end the cast doesn't just accept applaude, they celebrate the season and thank the audience for coming and wish us all a wonderful holiday. The perfect moment that embraces the essence of "A Christmas Carol". Definitely put this performance on your holiday list.
