A Christmas Carol: the Musical
December 7, 2023 @ 7:30 pm
Lake Country Players presents the annual production of “A Christmas Carol: the Musical” in downtown Hartland. Lake Country Playhouse, a unique and intimate community theater located in Hartland, Wisconsin, is proud to present its annual community production of Charles Dickens’ beloved holiday classic, A Christmas Carol.
Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes 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, & Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas: in this delightful musical rendition of the Charles Dickens classic.
“When Charles Dickens created this story I don’t know if he realized that he also created the perfect script,” says director Robert Hurd, Sr. “We honor his story through this adaptation by
playwright Michael Koscinski and music by Ernest Brusubardis. Come and continue your holiday tradition or start your own tradition this year!”
A Christmas Carol is directed by Hurd, marking his 11th year directing and 13th year overall involved with the production. Music direction is by Angie Rodenkirch, with Max Levine as
assistant music director and Vanessa Yenor as choreographer. Nancy Hurd, Sharon Jahneke, Dawn Mudry, and Chris Celestin round out the creative team.
A Christmas Carol will run from November 25th through December 10th, 2023.
Performances will be held on Thursday and Friday nights at 7:30 pm, Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 2:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday nights at 6:00 pm.
Tickets are $27. Group pricing is also available. Tickets are available HERE.
