A Christmas Carol is the classic novella by Charles Dickens that tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an old miser, who is visited by ghosts on Christmas eve. As the night goes on, the ghosts seek to convince Scrooge to give up his selfish ways and embrace the generosity of Christmas.

This production will be written and directed by James Gelter and produced by Justin Fetterman.

Auditioners are asked to arrive 10 minutes early. Actors 14 and over should be prepared to read selections from the script. A preview of those selections can be found at
