The historic Athens Theatre presents this merry, sparkling, tuneful, boisterous, big Broadway musical version of the world's most beloved Christmas story -- Dickens' A Christmas Carol.
"Scrooge! The Musical," features an all local, Central Florida cast of more than 45 experienced actors of all ages from as far north as Flagler County to the Orlando/Sanford/Mount Dora areas.
Based on the popular musical movie starring Albert Finney, "Scrooge! The Musical" tells this time-honored tale of redemption and love as only The Athens can -- with a beautiful and rousing musical score (including the well-known "Thank You Very Much"), breathtaking dancing, gorgeous costumes, uproarious comedy, and heart-warming drama.
