Photo Flash: First Look at John W. Engeman Theater's A CHRISTMAS CAROL - A GHOST STORY OF CHRISTMAS
Michael Wilson's adaptation is a creative re-telling of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, the classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, the heartless miser who discovers the true meaning of the holiday season after a Christmas Eve haunting. Through encounters with ghosts - including his late business partner Jacob Marley - Scrooge learns what ill fate lies in store for him if he continues on his greedy and heartless course.
Featuring all of Dickens' well-known characters (Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future), this story of love and redemption is both a chilling ghost tale and a heartwarming holiday event for families and people of all ages. This dazzling production, with original score by John Gromada is an unforgettable theatrical experience which will fill audiences with warm sentiments of the holiday season. A Christmas Carol instills a powerful message about redemption and the spirit of the holiday season.
