The Ocean City Theatre Company will put a musical spin on a timeless story by Charles Dickens with six performances of “A Christmas Carol – The Broadway Musical” over the next two weeks.
The production will feature a professional cast of performers under the direction of Shannon Agnew with choreography by Colleen Kreisel and music direction by John Grieco. Broadway’s 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 new life into the classic tale with their adaptation.
The musical remains true to the story with three ghosts leading the selfish Ebenezer Scrooge through his past, present and future. Scrooge ultimately greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.
Performances will be at the Ocean City Music Pier (Boardwalk at Moorlyn Terrace) at the following times:
• Dec. 8, 9, 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m.
• Dec. 10 and 16 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors and $15 for kids. Advance reservation is encouraged. Call (609) 399-6111 or visit oceancityvacation.com/boxoffice.
