Imprisoned in the dark and miserly life he has chosen, Ebenezer Scrooge faces a fateful night of ghosts, memories, visions, and fears. Will the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come help him find the way to a kinder heart and a brighter future? This hopeful and merry adaptation by Winston-Salem native and New York Times bestselling novelist Charlie Lovett is sure to bring holiday cheer to the whole family.

“It was such an honor, and a fascinating challenge, to adapt this beloved story for the stage,” commented novelist Charlie Lovett.  “A Christmas Carol is so many things, but one thing it isn’t is a play—that meant I had a lot of work to do, but it also meant I had opportunities to tease out elements of the story, always, of course, doing my best to be true to Dickens’ original. I hope audiences will enjoy the result and take away the spirit of the season when they leave the theatre.”

“We’re excited to bring this world premiere production to the community of Winston-Salem,” mentioned Executive Director Philip Powell. “This fantastical adaptation penned by New York Times best-selling author, Charlie Lovett, will delight audiences both young and old.”
