A Musical Christmas Carol
A Pittsburgh tradition for two decades, A Musical Christmas Carol encapsulates the jovial spirit and yuletide magic of the holiday in a production that infuses the classic Dickens tale with seasonal melodies. Audiences warm their hearts by the hearth of the rebirth of Scrooge from a miserly villain into a joyful philanthropist. The assembly of the lavishly costumed cast is rivaled by the construction of the sets, where smoke and light seem to seep from the depths of the stage as Jacob Marley returns to rattle his chains at his former partner and the Cratchits share Christmas dinner in their home. The good tidings are amplified by beloved carols including “Silent Night,” “Deck the Halls,” and “Joy to the World,” ferrying audiences back to Christmas mornings spent opening presents and dusting for Santa Claus’ prints.
Dedicated to celebrating the ghosts of musical theater past and present, the Pittsburgh CLO proudly remains a nonprofit cultural institution that lauds distinguished musical-theater folk while launching the careers of another generation of skilled performers.<p>
