Spectacular holiday carols and surprising anachronistic tuneful classics whisk your family on a captivating ride with the three soulful, rockin’ ghosts in Scrooge’s transformative dream. A Christmas Carol features a traditional Victorian setting and gorgeous period costumes, but with a musical score that spans genres and eras, from rousing gospel to rock-n-soul favorites, and from nostalgic harmony classics to contemporary hits.

Back by popular demand, This Wonderful Life<> plays November 28-December 28 on the Whisenhunt stage, starring Martin Burke of ZACH’s The Santaland Diaries and Harvey.  Based on the classic holiday film It’s a Wonderful Life, Burke plays all 37 characters in Bedford Falls including “George Bailey” a la Jimmy Stewart, “Mary,” “Clarence the Angel” and “Old Man Potter.” This comical romp underscored with tender sweetness is a joyous gift for all ages. This Wonderful Life is written by STEVE MURRAY, and directed by RICHARD ROBICHAUX. this wonderful life picZACH’s Family Series<> presents Holiday Heroes<>, guaranteed to delight families and children ages three and up.
