Catch the holiday spirit with Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come.  Our delightfully original adaptation of the Christmas classic is a celebration of Chesapeake culture and history, in story and song. Miserly Ebenezer Scrooge lives in Victorian-era Baltimore and works in the old financial district downtown.  When ghosts spirit him over the rowhouses of the city to visit his Maryland past, present and future, Scrooge learns to mend his stingy ways.  Filled with references to local neighborhoods, industries, and traditions,  and more than a dozen carols, this one-of-a-kind A Christmas Carol  thrills audiences of all ages as it spreads holiday cheer and Baltimore charm.
