Ensconced in his G Street office, Elijah Strube doesn’t care about the holiday or battling tyranny. He can only think about making lots of money. After three local spirits take him on an incredible journey across time, a reformed Strube is committed to serving his community, country and fellow man. Featuring everything from a high-energy USO dance to White House fireside chats, this fresh take on Dickens’ classic tale by James Magruder (Broadway’s Triumph of Love_) breathes new life into a beloved story. With original songs by Henry Krieger (Dreamgirls_) and Susan Birkenhead (Jelly’s Last Jam), this holiday event is magical family entertainment.
Adapted from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol by James Magruder
Original songs: music by Henry Krieger, lyrics by Susan Birkenhead
Directed by Molly Smith
