Family holiday fun, ghosts and all!
What better way to kick off your holiday season than by seeing the Meadow Brook Theatre's long-running production of Charles Dickens,' A Christmas Carol! Now celebrating over 35 years, this show has captured the hearts of audiences throughout Detroit.

The classic tale thrills with it's beloved characters and message of compassion, love and kindness and of course, Christmas spirit!
Ever since Charles Dickens first penned A Christmas Carol in 1843, it has seen myriad stage adaptations and the popularity of this tale of redemption and second chances has seemingly never waned. From stage to screen, opera to one man show, it is one of the most influential Christmas shows and a traditional holiday outing that defines the joy of the Yuletide period for most of us. Don't miss this 33rd outing of Charles Nolte's beloved adaptation. With Thomas D. Mahard as Scrooge, let Meadow Brook Theatre take you away with this wonderful tale of salvation and love.
Bah! Humbug! What is A Christmas Carol About?
Ebenzer Scrooge doesn't see the point of letting his employees have a day off for Christmas, not even kind Bob Cratchit, who's son Tiny Tim is very sick. Eventually, he is convinced and retires to his room to pass Christmas Eve as he usually does, alone. But this Christmas is different. He has a visitor for a change, the wretched soul of his former business partner Jacob Marley. Doomed to wander the earth for eternity for his sins in life, Marley warns Scrooge of 3 impeding visitations.
In a flurry of fear he meets the gentle Ghost of Christmas Past, the jolly Ghost of Christmas Present and the terrifying Ghost of Christmas to Come, all of whom want to teach him a lesson...
