Managing Artistic Director Thom Hofrichter and the players and crew at First Presbyterian Theater cast old Ebenezer Scrooge stateside for a musical retelling of the classic Dickens holiday tale. Inside the intimate 300-seat theater, audience members will slowly seep into the world of Chicago at the turn of the century without having to stare at a magic-eye poster of its skyline. Stage props, musical score, and period costumes transport imaginative minds to a 1906 landscape captured by Upton Sinclair in his novel The Jungle and in his numerous finger paintings. Miserly Scrooge and his ever-faithful clerk Bob Cratchit inhabit this teeming urban terrain where streetcars roamed streets alongside horses and where industrial soot clung to building and bodies like 12-year-old boys cling to chairs at school dances. When the three ghosts pay visits to mean old Scrooge, brush back the tingles that scurry up spines. In the play’s climatic moments, as Scrooge’s fate dangles in balance, learn alongside him the true meaning of Christmas, aside from the sales, the shopping, and the snow-Sphinx making.

Though for most performances, 30 tickets are available before the day of the show for free to full-time students, student admission to this show is $10 per ticket.

First Presbyterian Theater

The theater is part of the artistic arm of the First Presbyterian Church, and auditions for the troupe's roughly six annual plays are open to anyone. An art gallery doubles as the lobby for this 300-seat auditorium, which regularly hosts well-known ensembles, including past acts The King's Singers and saxophonist Ashu.
