A CHRISTMAS CAROL
December 1 – 23, 2022
Adapted by Tim Perrino, Music by Jeremy Helmes, Lyrics by Tim Perrino
Based on the book by Charles Dickens
The Covedale’s own very merry musical production, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, makes its triumphant return for the holidays! Our musical version of the classic Dickens tale is deeply faithful to the original, featuring the mean miser Scrooge, Tiny Tim and the most famous haunters of all – the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future! And it’s all wrapped up in exciting songs like, “Bring Back Christmas”, “On the Streets of Bethlehem”, “The Candle Carol” and many more. It’s been nine years since this show has brightened the Covedale stage. Come experience this “Ghost story of Christmas” again OR for the very first time. It’s a marvelous, merry way to share the yuletide with family and friends. God bless us everyone!
