Summary:

Based upon a retelling of Charles Dickens' classic novel in a 1970 film about the old bitter miser taken on a journey of self-examination and redemption, courtesy of several mysterious Christmas apparitions, the story was adapted for the stage by the original writing team in a charming musical production true to Dickens' work set in Victorian London. The song score was nominated for an Academy Award, and the Broadway-style show ran in London for many seasons since 1992 and is presented this year in a new production for the stage musical's 25th anniversary. It is wonderful to be producing this special show in the same year.
