A Christmas Carol
December 16-29, 2016
A Christmas Carol
By Arlitia Jones and Michael Evan Haney based on the book by Charles Dickens
Directed by Tom Robenolt
An Anchorage Holiday Tradition.
Witness Ebenezer Scrooge’s miraculous Christmas Eve transformation in Perseverance Theatre’s adaptation of Dickens’ famous book. Ebenezer Scrooge is a greedy businessman, with no place in his life for kindness, compassion, or charity, and destined to a lonely old age. But when four ghosts appear and warn him of a miserable afterlife, Scrooge is reminded of all the chances he had before to make different choices. Charles Dickens’ classic tale of redemption skillfully faithfully adapted by Arlitia Jones and Michael Evan Haney never ceases to please.
Performances in the Discovery Theatre at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts.
