by Charles Dickens, adapted by Rob Zapple
What do bluegrass music, St. Louis and Charles Dickens have in common?

St. Louis can get mighty cold in December, especially when there’s not enough food to go around. It was 1933, and times were hard. People were out of work, lost their homes, their families, and many lost hope. An unemployed Shakespearean actor and his manager run out of gas, and the townsfolk agree to supply them with some if they tell them the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim.  This depression-era adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic truly brings this story to life.

This special production of a holiday treat will benefit the work of The Young Hearts, a group of amazing teens who raise funds to battle blood cancers and other diseases.  All tickets are $17 and all performances are general admission seating.
