This adaptation of A Christmas Carol by Stephen Temperley was crafted specifically for Centenary Stage Company's Sitnik Theatre and features Musical Direction and Original Music by Kevin Lynch. Probably the most popular piece of fiction that Charles Dickens ever wrote, A Christmas Carol, was published in 1843. Charles Dickens, through the voice of Scrooge, continues to urge us to honor Christmas in our hearts and try to keep it all year round. This adaptation is not a musical, but rather a play with musical elements.

In-person performance dates and times for A Christmas Carol adapted by Stephen Temperley are Thursdays, December 2 and 9 at 7:30 pm; Fridays, December 3 and 10 at 8:00 pm; Saturdays, December 4 and 11 at 8:00 pm; Sundays, December 5 and 12 at 2:00 pm; with special addition matinee performances at 2:00 pm on Wednesday December 1 and Saturday December 4.
