Perhaps the best loved Christmas story of all time, this musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’s famous classic is particularly suited to children. A Christmas Carol is a heartwarming story of the transformation of Ebenezer Scrooge from a greedy, heartless miser to a generous, loving man after being visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. A Christmas Carol brings all the joy, sentiment, and meaning of the classic tale without being too scary for younger audiences.

The performance is approximately ­­­60 minutes in length. There will be an opportunity to meet performers in the lobby following show.

A Family 4-pack is available, which admits two adults and two children to the performance for $29.

Tickets for A Christmas Carol can be purchased from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Farber Box Office, Heritage Center, University of Dubuque, 2255 Bennett Street; by phone at 563.585.SHOW; or online at www.dbq.edu/heritagecenter.
