A Christmas Carol @ The Pantages Theater
Dec 21 @ 3:00 pm

A powerful story of redemption, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, has enchanted audiences the world over with its simple message of Holiday joy. Ebenezer Scrooge, that most unrepentant and miserly of fellows, is made to see the light as he survives a merciless battery of revelations by the ghosts of his own life: Jacob Marley and the Christmas Spirits of Past, Present, and Future.

With script adaptation, direction, and a flawless performance as Scrooge by award-winning 40 year theater veteran Scott H Severance, this new adaptation of Dickens’s ever popular classic fills the stage with first class professional actors, lush costumes, stunning sets, and puppetry, song and dance, a heavy dose of humor, and a timeless message. With the music of 26 beloved traditional carols of the season woven throughout this classic tale, A Christmas Carol is the perfect way to begin the holiday festivities in your community. There will be two performances: one at 3 PM, and one at 7:30 PM.
