Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is a timeless story with a universal message about the true spirit of the holiday season and the importance of friends and family. The tale follows the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and his clerk, Bob Cratchit, during a particularly difficult Christmastime. Through visits from three spirits, Scrooge learns the true meaning of helping his fellow man, and that there is no time like the present to become a better person. Besides being a feel-good story about love and friendship, this adaptation educates the audience about the class system of Victorian England and encourages them to help others who are less fortunate.
Recommended for Ages 5 and up.
