A don't miss, family-friendly show full of holiday spirit! All your favorite fairytale characters take on new roles to retell this adaptation of A Christmas Carol that's surprisingly true to the original, yet unlike you've ever seen it before! You'll never know who will show up next when the Big Bad Wolf as Ebenezer Scrooge meets the ghost of his old business partner Jacob Midas (Marley), who could turn anything to gold. Midas warns Big Bad that he'll be visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future (played by a Fairy Godmother, Old King Cole and the Queen of Hearts respectively). The ghosts make Scrooge realize what a scoundrel he's been to the Charming (or Crachit) family — including Prince Philip, Cinderella and their kids, Hansel, Gretel and Tabitha, their Little Match Girl — and help him remember what the Christmas spirit is all about.

August Wilson's Pulitzer prize-winning play is set in 1936 and centers around Boy Willie who arrives in Pittsburgh from the South in a battered truck loaded with watermelons to sell. He has an opportunity to buy some land down home, but he has to come up with the money quickly. He wants to sell an old piano that has been in his family for generations, but he shares ownership with his sister and it sits in her living room. She has already rejected several offers because the antique piano is covered with incredible carvings detailing the family's rise from slavery. Boy Willie tries to persuade his stubborn sister that the past is past, but she is more formidable than he anticipated.
