St. John's Players are reviving this well-known tale, complete with its traditional Victorian setting and familiar characters. Ebenezer Scrooge, a 'squeezing, wrenching, grasping man, who carries winter with him wherever he goes', is visited by three spirits in. He sees his life past, present and future, laid out before him and, guided by them, chooses a new path to tread in life.

It's a story that warms our hearts.as Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future remind us that the true Christmas spirit comes from opening our minds and hearts to the welfare of those around us. . At the end of the story Scrooge is relieved to discover that there is still time for him to change and we see him transformed into a generous and kind-hearted human being.

Take a break from the Holiday rush and join us for this traditional dramatic telling of this holiday classic. Sometimes funny but also eerie and frightening; Dickens' A Christmas Carol has been recreated for the whole family and will get you in a Yuletide mood.
