A CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE MUSICAL
Music by Alan Menken
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Book by Lynn Ahrens & Mike Ockren
A favorite Triad holiday tradition returns with High Point Community Theatre’s musical version of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday tale. Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others.
With an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he’s forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present, & Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.
Runtime is approximately 90 minutes. No intermission.
