Performed by students in grades 2-12, Ebeneezer Scrooge and his ghostly encounters come to life in this lavish and thrilling stage adaptation. Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that 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 and 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.

***Sensory-friendly performance: DEC 2 • 2PM***
The Straz Center’s Patel Conservatory Theater is pleased to present a sensory-friendly, student performed, professionally produced production of A Christmas Carol. Often, because of the challenge of sitting quietly for long periods of time, loud noises and light changes, children with sensory processing disorders such as autism and Asperger’s aren’t able to enjoy theater. In this performance, audience members will enjoy the full production with adjustments made to the show’s lighting and sound effects. Audiences will also have the freedom to move, wander, verbalize and utilize break areas. This performance allows all patrons to enjoy theater without barriers.
