We all grew up with Charles Dickenss A Christmas Carol and those guilt-inducing ghosts of Christmases past, present, and yet to come. Whether we read the novella, watched the movies (props to Bill Murray), or caught a theatrical production of the age-old story, the deliciously negative Ebenezer Scrooge was a consistent fixture in the holidays of our youth. Considering Scrooges feel-good transformation, it would be an injustice, and probably land you on that weird jolly guys naughty list, if you skipped A Christmas Carol, the Musical at Actors Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre this season. The familiar tale takes a musical turn with songs by Scott Morlock and Earl Maulding, who adapted the story with Nina Felice. Get ready to spend a few hours with Tiny Tim, the Cratchit family, those nagging ghosts, and that lovable curmudgeon, Scrooge.
