Reviews are in, raves for A Christmas Carol!

Director Julie Beckman has done a fantastic job of making this “not your parent’s Christmas Carol” with the wonderful casting and updated music and dance, and I for one am here for it! All the emotion and substance of the original but even more.

— Jay Irwin,

Praise from past audiences:

“It was a wonderful holiday experience for us. We don’t buy gifts, we share experiences and this was what Christmas is all about.”

“They always change it a bit to make it a different and amazing and unique experience every year so it’s new and fun.”

“It has always been such a moving experience being so close to the actors and the whole experience is something hard to put to words.”

“I was blown away by the talent of the actors, wonderful set, and theatre in the round. Thank you for inspiring me.”
