About this show

From the first "Bah Humbug! to the final "God bless us, everyone!," Metropolis' annual staging of Charles Dickens'A Christmas Carol is always a warm, lovingly staged, family-friendly homage to everyone's favorite holiday tale. Robin M. Hughes directs. Who can resist Dickens' familiar story of the greedy curmudgeon Ebenezer Scrooge? His tale unfolds on a single Christmas Eve in 1843 London, when a midnight visit from the spirit of his former business partner Jacob Marley sets off a series of fantastic journeys to pivotal moments in Scrooge's life. The first, Scrooge is accompanied by the Ghost of Christmas Past, second, the Ghost of Christmas Present, third - and most terrifying - the Ghost of Christmas Future. When Scrooge's eyes are opened to a possible future that connects his death to poor clerk Bob Cratchit's child Tiny Tim's, Scrooge finds redemption, and magically transforms from stonehearted ogre to warm ambassador of holiday cheer.
