Celebrate the season as Potter Center presents new musical version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ on Dec. 9.

November 16, 2023

Experience the transformative power of redemption in Charles Dickens’ timeless tale, “A Christmas Carol,” with a lush new musical coming to the Potter Center at Jackson College on Saturday, Dec. 9 at 7 p.m.

The tale is a hallmark of the holiday season: Ebenezer Scrooge, the greediest of misers, is made to see the light as he survives repeated revelations by the Ghosts of his own life: Jacob Marley and the Christmas Spirits of Past, Present and Future. With script adaptation, direction and flawless performances, this new adaptation of Dickens’ classic fills the stage with first class professional actors, authentic costumes, stunning sets and puppetry, song and dance, a heavy dose of humor, and a timeless message.

Celebrate the true Spirit of Christmas with this brand new, original production filled with haunting special effects and heartfelt sentiment. “A Christmas Carol” is delightful and thoroughly entertaining, the perfect family holiday event filled with beloved music of the season, superb staging, and tremendous artistry. Presented by CMI Entertainment, the production drew great applause from audiences last season:

“The show was spectacular! Acting and singing were incredible, and the sound was perfectly balanced…moving the production with perfect motion. Well-delivered show and a solid production.” — Chad Armel, Greensburg Happenings

“The best ever, a new twist on an old classic… Our biggest show and the best crew ever!” – The Villages, Florida
