Celebrate Christmas together with the production of A Christmas Carol Musical at the Ohio Theatre - Columbus on Friday, November 24, 2023!
A Christmas Carol was originally a book written by the famous author Charles Dickens. The first adaptation of A Christmas Carol was in the 1994 musical production that debuted in New York City with the award-winning composer and Disney legend Alan Menken writing the musical scoring. The musical was shown at Madison Square Garden annually until the year before the screen adaptation was released.
The story follows our grumpy main protagonist, Ebenezer Scrooge, during the Christmas season as he is visited by the Ghost of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, to convince Scrooge to live a life of goodness. Theater critics generally love the musical production, and a quote from New York Times writer David Richards states, "The eye is courted at every turn, the special effects come on a regular basis, and the street scenes don't lack for warmly dressed bodies and the odd beggar. At the end, snow falls in the hall and onstage, which thrilled an incredulous 8-year-old boy seated near me that he got up and danced in the aisle."
The show features the incredible Tony Award winner Jefferson Mays, who will play 50 roles in this 90-minute show. It's a master class of a performance that will have you believing in miracles. To complete to show, here is the creative team:
