The White Christmas Album 3

What do A Christmas Carol and the Beatles have in common? At the Music Box Theater’s The White Christmas Album 3, lots. The group has combined elements from Charles Dickens’s story and the Beatles’ music into a brisk, lively and highly tuneful holiday extravaganza that promises to be great fun. The production retains the narrative strength of Dickens’s classic, but with startlingly creative transformations.

Music Box co-founder and performer Rebekah Dahl explains: “This year we’re…turning Dickens’ A Christmas Carol on its head. We’ve got multiple Scrooges, multiple spirits and Charles Dickens himself has agreed to be our narrator! We’re also adding a violinist, Alisa Pederson, to our wonderful four-piece band, G Sharp and the MBT Three, so the music has never been better!”
