Fort Myers Theatre’s ‘Christmas Carol’ breathes fantastic new life into Dickens’ classic tale


Next up at Fort Myers Theatre is the Broadway version of A Christmas Carol, in which Broadway heavy hitters Alan Menken (Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island) breathe fantastic new life into Charles Dickens’ classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others.

With an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he’s forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts lead him through his Past, Present and Future one fateful Christmas Eve. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.

The show runs December 10 – 19.
