A CHRISTMAS CAROL



THE MUSICAL



presented November 5–20, 2016  



Rated (G)



Music by Alan Menken



Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens



Book by Mike Ockrent & Lynn Ahrens



 



 



This spectacular musical version of the classic Dickens Christmas tale explodes with the rich musical score by Alan Menken, composer of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Aladdin.  Come experience Charles Dickens’ magical tale full of ghosts and good cheer in the wonderful world of Disney tradition. Dickens wanted to remind us that, even for a crusty curmudgeon like Ebenezer Scrooge, it's never too late to change. And with the help of 3 ghosts - Past, Present, and Yet-To-Be - and the enduring love of Tiny Tim, Scrooge learns to spread love and goodwill, and cherish what Christmas is all about.
