"A Christmas Carol" at the Denver Center for Performing Arts
It has been a common saying for quite some time, that the only things that remain constant in this world are death and taxes.Â However, another thing that people don’t mention is the yearly appearance of one of the most popular and widely known Christmas stories – “A Christmas Carol”.
Based upon the classic novel of the same name written by Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol” is the story of a cold, penny pinching old man named Ebenezer Scrooge.Â The tale takes place on a cold Christmas Eve, and immediately gives the audience some insight as to the greedy and cold-hearted nature of Scrooge.Â That night, the ghost of Scrooge’s old business partner (who had died years earlier) appears to Scrooge and tells him that his soul will be bearing heavy chains for eternity if he does not change his greedy ways, and also predicts that a series of other ghosts will follow.Â That night, three ghosts visit Ebenezer in an attempt to show him the true meaning behind Christmas, and what it means to be an all around kindred spirit.Â Just in case you have NOT ever seen or read “A Christmas Carol”, the ending will not be spoiled here.
This year, an ensemble cast will put on the perennial Christmas classic at the Denver Center for Performing Arts. Follow Ebenezer Scrooge as he learns the true meaning of Christmas from the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. The production will bring your holidays to life and get you in the spirit.
“A Christmas Carol” shows daily until December 26th.Â Starting times vary, so check the website below for details.
