Take a picture with Santa at this brand new production of the timeless and beloved tradition A Christmas Carol! Sundog Theatre brings you Scrooge, the three Ghosts of Christmas, Tiny Tim, and a host of other Dickensian characters in this beloved tale of redemption and enchantment. The show is specifically geared towards young audiences, but is appropriate for people of all ages. Since Dickens first told his tale in the mid-1800’s, it has remained a favorite holiday story. “A Christmas Carol” is humorous, touching, and joyous.
Sundog’s presentation stays true to the original story in its one-hour musical version, adapted for the stage by Cash Tilton with original songs by Susan Mondzak and six professional actors. Children enjoy the richly drawn characters that pop out of the book and onto the stage. And they’ll be thrilled when they see a child chosen from the audience to portray Tiny Tim!
In the guise of a ghost story, “A Christmas Carol” explores themes of humanity, materialism, and redemption. The show also celebrates the spirit of the season whether it be Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or any others. Audience members will leave the theatre singing the songs!
