The powerful story of redemption, Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” has enchanted audiences the world over with its simple message of selfless giving.

With beloved traditional carols of the season included, “A Christmas Carol” is an enchanting way to begin the holiday festivities in your community.
