A Christmas Carol 2016
December 16th through December 29th
An Anchorage Holiday Tradition.
By Arlitia Jones and Michael Evan Haney based on the book by Charles Dickens
Witness Ebenezer Scrooge’s miraculous Christmas Eve transformation in Perseverance Theatre's adaptation of Dickens' famous book. Ebenezer Scrooge is a greedy businessman, with no place in his life for kindness, compassion, or charity, destined to a lonely old age. But when four ghosts appear and warn him of a miserable afterlife, Scrooge is reminded of all the chances he had before to make different choices. Charles Dickens classic tale of redemption never ceases to please.
