About the Show

As Madison’s finest holiday tradition, this is much more than a play. It’s an event the whole family can enjoy. A mark-it-on-the-calendar and get-a-little-dressed-up kind of day. Step back in time to Victorian England for a wild seasonal ride. It’s the journey of Scrooge from curmudgeonly miser to all-around good guy. And speaking of good guys, James Ridge of American Players Theatre plays Scrooge to perfection in this, our signature production.

Book by Charles Dickens
