A CHRISTMAS CAROL SYNOPSIS:

Meet Elizabeth Scrooge and journey to 1840s London in this delightful new adaptation by Jeff Cook of Charles Dickens’ holiday classic. Not a straight gender swap, this year’s A Christmas Carol is a lovingly reimagined version of the story full of the same characters, tradition, warmth, and festive atmosphere of the original! Our all-new re-telling is sure to win the hearts of children and adults this season!
