'Scrooge the Musical' Opens December 4


The Lindenwood University Department of Theatre will continue its Mainstage Season with “Scrooge…the Musical,” a musical adaptation of the holiday favorite, “A Christmas Carol,” by Charles Dickens. The book, music, and lyrics are by Leslie Bricusse.

Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 4, 5, and 6 and at 2 p.m. on December 7. Ticket prices are $20 for platinum seating, $15 for orchestra, $12 for parterre, and $10 for balcony seating.

This is a delightful musical adaptation of Charles Dickens’s novel. This timeless heart-warming tale once again returns for the holidays, only this time it is set to music. Cold-souled Ebenezer Scrooge learns to embrace the “true Christmas spirit” and that mankind must help one another as he survives a series of revelations by the ghosts of past, present and future.

Folks might not have had much to sing about in 1840s England, but this musical will make you believe otherwise. This holiday favorite is fun for the whole family.

The performances are held in the Bezemes Family Theatre, located in new J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts, 2300 West Clay Street, St. Charles, Mo., 63301.
