A Christmas Carol, A Musical by Allegro Community Players
Fauquier High School Auditorium, 705 Waterloo Road, Warrenton
Put yourself in the holiday spirit with A Christmas Carol, A Musical presented by the Allegro Community Players. Beautiful costumes, extraordinary acting and wonderful music will make this an evening for the whole family to enjoy! Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated “Bah! Humbug!” Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he’s forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his past, present and future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.
