Based on Charles Dickens’ classic novel, this opulent musical adaptation has become essential to the holiday season in Denver. Now in its 23rd DCPA staging, A Christmas Carol traces skinflint Ebenezer Scrooge’s overnight journey to redemption.

Director Bruce K. Sevy has announced that venerable actor Philip Pleasants has decided he will be playing Scrooge for the final time. He will return in the new year to perform in All the Way. But after Dec. 27, the actor is hanging up his humbug.
