When Charles Dickens penned “A Christmas Carol” in 1843, little did many realize the archetypes he was planting on a holiday that wasn’t the calendar heavyweight we know now. Christmas trees and greeting cards were still nascent practices when he almost single-handedly turned Yuletide from Victorian somberness and toward festivity.

The story of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and his spectral change of heart is old hat, but local creative talent Scott Morlock has adapted it to his own musical vision. Mobile stage veteran Stacey Driskell directs this tale sure to lighten the step and heart of both young and old alike.
Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.

Entrance is $10. Cash and local checks accepted. Tickets and reservations also available online. For more info, call 251-457-8887 or go to www.cctshows.com.
