The Workshop's stage adaptation of the Charles Dickens' holiday classic, "A Christmas Carol" was inspired from the original novel. The well known scenes portraying all the characters are included to tell the story of the miserly employer who comes to understand the spirit of Christmas with the help of some spiritual intervention.
The show is followed by a holiday variety show. Cast members sing, tell holiday stories, reminisce about personal holiday experiences, and along the way invite audience participation. The Stage Actors’ Workshop considers their Holiday show to be the highlight of their performance season.
