Adapted from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
By James Magruder
Original songs: music by Henry Krieger, lyrics by Susan Birkenhead
Directed by Molly Smith

It’s Dickens’ A Christmas Carol like you’ve never seen it before.

Set in D.C. in 1941, this delightful new adaptation is filled with local history, high energy USO dances and loads of charm. Ensconced in his G Street office, Elijah Strube doesn’t care about celebrating the holiday. He can only think about making lots of money—that is until three local spirits take him on an incredible journey across time! Perfect for the whole family, this fresh take on the beloved classic features period tunes, traditional carols and four new songs by Henry Krieger (Dreamgirls) and Susan Birkenhead (Jelly’s Last Jam).

“Resistance is futile, the heartstrings will be tugged.” -Debbie Minter Jackson, DC Theatre Scene
