A Christmas Carol

By Adapted by Colleen Madden

Directed by James Ridge

As Madisonís finest holiday tradition, this is an event the whole family can enjoy. A mark-it-on-the-calendar and get-a-little-dressed-up kind of day. Step back in time to Victorian England for a wild seasonal ride. Itís the journey of Scrooge from curmudgeonly miser to all-around good guy.
The production gets an extreme makeover this year, with all new scenery, lighting, music and dance. American Players Theater regular John Pribyl plays Scrooge and James Ridge directs this, our signature production.
