Experience the timeless classic that captivates audiences each year: Arts Express’ annual production of A Christmas Carol, the musical.
The show stars Tucson legend Armen Dirtadian as Ebenezer Scrooge, as well as Michael and Kimberly Chaffin, AJ Lepore, Korby Myrick, Susan Stokes, and many more! Adapted from the Dickens classic, this musical features a brilliant score by Broadway heavy hitters Alan Menken (Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Once on This Island, Seussical). After premiering at the Paramount Theatre at New York’s Madison Square Garden in 1994, A Christmas Carol the musical made its television debut starring Kelsey Grammer as Ebenezer Scrooge.
This year, in addition to the musical, the merry old streets of London will come to life in the First Annual Arts Express Dickens Festival! The festival will include holiday amusement, merry merchants, jolly musicians & caroling, scrumptious food & treats, photos with Father Christmas, and roaming Victorian era characters. There is even a pre-show event to meet-and-greet with Charles Dickens and learn about the life and motivations of this intriguing author.
