Charles Dickens' tale of Scrooge takes the stage in New Stage Theatre's annual production of "A Christmas Carol." I've always found the Yuletide to be one of the best times of the year to enjoy a good show at the theater, and this story is a classic Christmas favorite. Set in Victorian-era London, Ebenezer Scrooge is a "bah humbug" old fart consumed by his quest for wealth. With a few visits from The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, however, Scrooge might find himself with a little more holiday cheer. Catch one of New Stage's 18 performances in its brand new set.
