It’s easy to see that Christmas is the biggest production of all—the last minute panic buying, the horrendous traffic, and the overindulging that comes with every dinner party attended. In the midst of all the madness, treat yourself and the whole family to A Christmas Carol, 9 Works Theatrical’s latest musical based on Charles Dickens’ 1843 novella. Centering on the cold-hearted, Christmas-hating miser Ebenezer Scrooge, it’s a story of redemption, love, and kindness; but most of all it’s a reminder to help those in need whenever we can.
