The smash hit of 2011 returns to the CSC stage! "A tonic for children and adults…a transfixing journey…," raved
the New York Times about the show that ran for ten years in Madison Square Garden. Charles Dickens' classic gets the full Broadway
treatment by the Broadway team of Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid,), Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical) and Mike
Ockrent (Crazy For You, Me and My Girl). A Christmas Carol retains its emotional power and pure joy, thanks to the marvelously-told
story by Ockrent and Ahrens, and the Menken/Ahrens score filled with beautiful melodies and emotional lyrics.

"'A Christmas Carol: The Musical’ a Joyous All-Family Entertainment
at Centenary Stage Company
"Directing... Michael Blevins. Not only has he masterfully guided
this enormous cast as director, but he is the choreographer. Blevins
has impressively staged the dancing numbers that range from smooth
party dancing to energetic tap dancing to an exciting, precision kick line."
"Osborn Focht as Scrooge... is a perfect "humbug" Scrooge, never too
menacing for the junior members of the audience, properly humorous
for adults. Focht displays a a fine singing voice and remarkable agility
on his feet."
"...tuneful music and spirited cast of seasoned lead actors and an energetic
ensemble of students from the Centenary drama program and the
CSC's Young Performers Workshop... Bottom line...you will leave the
theatre with the proper joyous holiday spirit."
