Bitter miser Ebenezer Scrooge has nearly humbugged his way through another Christmas Eve when the specter of his former partner, Jacob Marley, appears to warn him that three spirits will visit in the night to lead him through Christmases past, present, and future. Through a sweeping score and whimsical storytelling, Scrooge seeks redemption for his selfish ways in time for a happy Christmas Day – lest he doom himself and others to a more chilling fate.

Broadway heavy hitters Alan Menken (Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors, Newsies) and Lynn Ahrens (Anastasia, Ragtime, Once On This Island), breathe fantastic new life into Charles Dickens’ time-honored tale, earning its place as Broadway’s longest-running holiday show.

Run time is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes with no intermission.
