A haunting, high-stepping, holiday retelling of the classic Dickens tale “A Christmas Carol” by Alan Menken will be presented Nov. 16-Dec. 9 by the Davis Musical Theatre Company.
The musical by Menken, an Oscar- and Tony-winning composer (“The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Little Shop of Horrors”), and Tony-winning lyricist Lynn Ahrens (“Seussical,” “Ragtime”) seamlessly blends unforgettable songs with the familiar tale.
“It’s a musical that played every holiday at Madison Square Garden’s theater from 1994 until 2003, but it hasn’t been seen much since that time,” says John Ewing, president of DMTC.
Performances of Menken’s “A Christmas Carol” are at 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:15 p.m. Sundays at the DMTC Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive, Davis.
Tickets are $18 general, $16 for students and seniors and $14 per person for groups of 10 or more. Tickets are available online at www.dmtc.org or by calling 530-756-3682. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
