A Christmas Carol Trailer
Cropped face that has two eyes and the bridge of a nose. Eyes are wide open and glasses sit on their nose. The reflection in the glasses is a spector. A Christmas Carol is written below the face.
Listen to A Christmas Carol like you’ve never heard before!

Past, present, and future – all concepts of time that can be at the same time vague and real. For Charles Dickens’s Ebenezer Scrooge, he’ll experience all three in a magical and improbably journey to transform his life.

Join a three person cast of Fergie Philippe, Ashley Winkfield, and Madeleine Dauer as they explore Ebenezer Scrooge’s magical transformation in Dickens’s A Christmas Carol. In this adaptation, you’ll hear the horror that Dickens so aptly wrote but also experience the heartwarming story that has become a holiday classic.
