A Christmas Carol

Based on the story by CHARLES DICKENS
Adapted by JOHN WOLF and TOM AULINO

A Detroit family tradition, now in its third joyous year!

Join Ebenezer Scrooge on a ghostly adventure in Dickens’ classic story. When the miserly old Scrooge is visited by his former business partner, now deceased, he begins a journey into the past, present and future to learn the true meaning of Christmas. Will the old codger redeem himself? Can the spirits inspire him to a greater purpose? Find out this Christmas at the Bonstelle Theatre. At just 75 minutes, with no intermission, A Christmas Carol is perfect for families.
