End of Year

A Christmas Carol by Patrick Barlow, adapted from the story by Charles Dickens: An Amateur Production BY ARRANGEMENT WITH ORiGiN™ THEATRICAL, ON BEHALF OF SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.

It’s Dickens, but not as you know it.

Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by three ghosts on the eve of Christmas. They lead him on a heart-wrenching journey to relive a Christmas long since lost, experience Christmas through the eyes of those less cynical, and sneak a peak at a Christmas yet to come.

Featuring all the characters you know and love (or hate), Patrick Barlow’s adaptation of this classic Christmas story will have you laughing, crying, and even singing in your seats as you experience this heartwarming tale of Christmas spirit in a whole new way.
