Event Details

Based upon the famous classic by Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol is a heartwarming story of the transformation of Ebenezer Scrooge from a greedy, heartless miser to a generous, loving man. When the play opens, Scrooge is in his counting house in London. He is a “squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner!” Three ghostly visits – from the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future – leave an indelible impression on Ebenezer.

Filled with love and the true spirit of the Christmas season, he begins to change his selfish ways and open his heart to those around him. Students will delight in this classic tale of Scrooge, the ghosts, Bob Cratchit, and Tiny Tim. Virginia Repertory Theatre brings all the characters to life on stage in this lively and heartwarming musical performance. Watch Mr. Scrooge have a change of heart from stone to gold as he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas. All the joy, sentiment and meaning are here, without being too scary for young audiences.
