A Christmas Carol

Adaption by Dr. Andrew Harris

Directed by Dale G. Gutt and Marilyn Latham


Play Synopsis:
The one-hour performance (story by Charles Dickens, adapted by Dr. Andrew Harris) is an annual family tradition at MRT.  Each season more people are discovering this timeless story, in a way that only MRT can tell, with families coming back every year making it a part of their holiday season tradition.  The miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is taught the true meaning and spirit of Christmas by ghosts who show him his own past and present. He is also shown what the future holds for him if he doesn't change his behavior.
