Christmas is a time to be with family and friends around a fire sipping hot cocoa, but when a group of friends on a ski holiday find themselves in the middle of a blizzard, they must take refuge in a small cottage in the woods. Unexpectedly snowed in on Christmas, the group must make the best of it.

A CHILDREN'S THEATRE CHRISTMAS CAROL

Way Off Broadway puts its own twist on a holiday staple in this production. In Way Off Broadway's retelling of the classic Charles Dickens tale, it's Ms. Ebenezer, a school teacher who has no time for fun, that is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Along with the students in her class, they all help to bring the spirit of the season into her life.
