Open auditions are coming up for our annual holiday show,

For the 40th year, the spirits of Christmas Past, Present

and Future will converge in North Texas's longest-running and

highest acclaimed Dinner Theatre. The Pocket Sandwich Theatre presents

Joe Dickinson and Laurie Tirmenstein's "Ebenezer Scrooge", a musical adaptation of

Charles Dickens' iconic holiday story, A Christmas Carol. This will be our first Christmas

at our new home in Historic Downtown Carrollton.

 

This adaptation of A Christmas Carol brings Dickens' narrative to vivid life.

Ebenezer Scrooge's journeys with the spirits of Christmas on one magical

Christmas Eve. From his kind-hearted sister Fan and first

love Belle to his generous employer Fezziwig and humble clerk Bob

Cratchit, Scrooge is repeatedly shown the saving grace of love and

concern for humanity. The heartwarming message of "A Christmas Carol"

helps to make it one of the world's most popular stories.
