A Pittsburgh holiday tradition for two decades, A Musical Christmas Carol encapsulates the jovial spirit and yuletide magic of the season in a production that infuses the classic Dickens tale with seasonal melodies. Audiences warm their hearts by the hearth of the seasonal rebirth of Scrooge from a miserly villain into an uncomfortably joyful philanthropist. The assembly of the lavishly costumed cast is rivaled by the construction of the sets, where smoke and unearthly 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 tumble through the cluttered glory of their lovingly lived-in home. The Christmastime milieu is 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.
Though Pittsburgh CLO sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available for adult customers.
