Open auditions are coming up for our annual holiday show,
"Ebenezer Scrooge." The auditions will be held at the theatre,
1104 S. Elm Street, in the Historic Downtown Carrollton Square.
For the 41st 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 second
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.
