Cast: 4m., 3w., 4 children, extras as desired. The Vancouver Sun called this show "an elaborate joy of tunefulness, color and imagination. It uses the stage to create radiant illusions … What is visually clear and inventive find its equal in the music." The Toronto Globe and Mail writes, "A Christmas Carol is a treat … It avoids the sloppy emotionalizing that disfigures most productions … and the various effects of magic have been selected with theatrical taste and simplicity … In other words, the production operates at the same level of intelligence as did Charles Dickens when he wrote the original. A joy to behold … with festive music you're happy to leave the theatre humming … Instinctively theatrical, a family entertainment of infectious joyousness." Multiple simple sets. Approximate running time: 90 minutes.
