Ebenezer Scrooge, of Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol,” will take the stage this Christmas season through the collaborative efforts of DWU’s theatre and music departments and the Mitchell Area Community Theatre in “Scrooge, the Musical.” This stage musical, written in 1992 by Leslie Bricusse, follows the story of the old miser as he’s visited by the three Christmas spirits – past, present and future – and embarks on a journey to save his soul on one fateful Christmas Eve night.


This classic story of redemption is a family favorite and appropriate for all ages.
