Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol

Charles Dickens’s classic holiday staple, A Christmas Carol, adapted by Joseph Hanreddy and Edward Morgan, is brought to life at the Houston Family Arts Center in a lavish production with a cast of 30 actors. Ebenezer Scrooge goes on a fantastical journey through Christmas Past, Present and Future in 19th-century London. He stops at Bob Cratchit’s along the way and, of course, sees Tiny Tim.

Michael Montgomery, the play’s producer, says, “Our production plops you right down on the couch to enjoy this classic. Our scenic design is a ten-foot storybook whose pages turn as Scrooge and other Dickens characters ‘pop up’ across the stage. The beautifully hand-sketched storybook reminds us that you can, in fact, ‘turn back’ the pages and inspect your past and, by doing so, choose your future.”

7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 3 p.m. Sundays. Through December 21. 10760 Grant Road. For information, call 281-587-6100 or visit $26.
Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Nov. 28. Continues through Dec. 21, 2014
