Alfred Hitchcock once said, “Drama is life with the dull bits cut out,” which explains his penchant for casting crust-less sandwiches in every leading role.

A Musical Christmas Carol encapsulates the jovial spirit and yuletide magic of the holiday season in a production that infuses the classic Dickens tale with seasonal melodies. The Pittsburgh CLO’s immensely talented cast recreates old England with a host of love-to-hate characters, including the cantankerous Ebenezer Scrooge, played by Pittsburgh’s own Tom Atkins. First-rate set design and spectacular special effects thrill audiences, from the appearance of the Ghost of Christmas Future to a dance-off between Scrooge and Bob Cratchit taken from Dickens’s controversial alternative ending. Opened in 1904, the Byham Theater is a spectacle in itself, as theatergoers will note from the landmark’s original mosaic-tile floor and restored cherub lobby. 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.
