Sure, you could get all of your Christmas entertainment from TV, Netflix, or Redbox, but why limit your holiday fun to what you can watch at home? A Christmas Carol may be a classic holiday story we already know, but the chance to get to see this story of kindness and appreciation –told in a whole new way — only comes around once a year.

From ZACH Theatre’s description:
Austin’s most rockin’ holiday tradition returns to make merry with new music and surprises to get the party started. ZACH’s inspired adaptation of the Dickens’ classic is a musical sleigh ride through rhythm and time, infusing the traditional Victorian story with a score that spans all genres and eras. Motown meets the Ho-Ho-Holidays in this family-friendly spectacular, creating an infectious spirit that has everyone dancing in the aisles. Celebrate the season with the loving Cratchit family and three soulful ghosts as they take Ebenezer Scrooge on a joyride to rediscover his heart and love for human kindness.
The production, performed in the Topfer Theatre, is best suited for adults and children 6 and up.
This year’s production of A Christmas Carol runs from November 21 through December 30, 2018. In addition, there will be an ASL Interpreted, Audio Described, and Open Captioned showing on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 and a Post-Show Discussion the same night.
And to help our dear readers enjoy this special production and save a little holiday cash, we are giving away a family four pack to check out the show! There are no Scrooges here — you can even pick the date for when you’d like to attend, when your hectic holiday schedule allows. You have all week to enter — we’ll draw and notify the winner on Black Friday. Good luck!
