A transformative, musical wonderland that’s fun for all the family

Join Ebenezer Scrooge in a transformative, musical wonderland as he takes a magical journey towards friendship and love, guided by three ghostly spirits. This traditional tale – full of wonder and joy – is surprisingly staged and contemporarily cast; it’s the perfect dose of holiday fun – for all the family.
