Scrooge! The Musical
The fun and fast-paced musical production, “Scrooge! The Musical” is returning to Plano for the holiday season. It’s the 12th anniversary of this North Texas Performing Arts tradition. Based on Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” the musical is about miserly Scrooge as he neglects his loved ones to count his gold coins. One fateful Christmas Eve, he gets the chance to redeem himself for his soul and humanity. “Scrooge! The Musical” is a wonderful reminder of the importance of love and family during the holidays, with fun musical numbers interwoven throughout the story.
The production has been named one of the top ten must-see events for the Christmas season by Plano Profile. Mike Mazur returns as the director for his eighth year, promising to bring the audience a high-quality experience that will keep the tradition alive and fresh. Performances will be held in The Courtyard Theatre from Dec. 7 to Dec. 11 and at the Willow Bend Center of the Arts from Dec. 14 to Dec. 18. Ticket prices start at $20.
