A Disco Christmas Carol

With music by Josh Jordan and Bethany MacLachland and a book by Jordan, Red Door Theatre’s A Disco Christmas Carol is a decidedly different take on Dickens’s classic parable. Jordan promises the show’s “not the same old story; not the same old Scrooge. Eris Scrooge (she replaces Ebenezer) is an angry soul with a tragic family secret. Through the magic of television game shows and audience prizes — yes, audience prizes — she must set everything right with her siblings, Fannie and Ben.
