A Holiday Family Tradition! Judy Russell Presents: Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” adapted by Anna Russell. Last seen in Prince George in 2012 and 2014, A Christmas Carol tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a greedy businessman who thinks only of making money. For him, Christmas is, in his own words, a humbug. It has been seven years since his friend and partner, Jacob Marley, died and on Christmas Eve. Marley's ghost tells him he is to be visited during the night by three spirits: The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present and The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. When Scrooge awakens on Christmas morning he is a new man, intent on doing good and celebrating the season with all of those around him. Filled with Christmas music, dance and entertainment for the whole family, this Holiday Classic is not to be missed!
