Essential to the holiday season in Denver, A Christmas Carol promises to “warm your heart and renew your holiday spirit” according to the Examiner. Based on Charles Dickens’ classic novel, this joyous and opulent musical adaptation traces money-hoarding skinflint Ebenezer Scrooge’s triumphant overnight journey to redemption. A Christmas Carol illuminates the meaning of the holiday season in a way that has resonated for generations.

Sam Gregory returns in the role of Ebenezer Scrooge with Director Melissa Rain Anderson at the helm of this beloved holiday tradition.

A Christmas Carol 2016

Theater Review: A Christmas Carol

If this production doesn’t warm up your holiday heart—no matter your beliefs—you are truly a Scrooge!


Kennedy: In a sea of Denver holiday shows, we still circle back to the classic “A Christmas Carol”

Whether you wish to be happily haunted or cheekily taunted or some quite other state — there’s likely a show for that.
