A Christmas Carol

By Charles Dickens, adapted by Colleen Madden

Directed by James Ridge

As Madison’s 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 date. Step back in time to Victorian England for a wild seasonal ride. It’s the journey of Scrooge from curmudgeonly miser to all-around good guy. Music, dancing, and plenty of Bah Humbug! John Pribyl returns to play Scrooge and James Ridge directs this, our signature production.
