A Christmas Carol: The Musical
7:30 PM
MCT Center for the Performing Arts
When the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future come knocking, where will you be? Those ghosts will visit Ebenezer Scrooge Nov. 30- Dec. 17 when the Missoula Community Theatre presents “A Christmas Carol: The Musical.” The Charles Dickens classic story, accompanied by the glorious music of composer Alan Menken (“Disney’s Beauty and the Beast”), has become a new holiday favorite.
It’s that music, says director Joseph Martinez, and “the beauty of the telling of this version” that drew him to the show. Martinez has directed this show five times, but he still loves the story. “This script and production have elements of surprise that you don’t see in other versions,” he notes. While this is definitely a Christmas show, Martinez feels this version has a Halloween feel to it because of Ebenezer’s journey with the ghosts. Those ghosts may provide occasional scary moments for younger children, but this family-friendly production is predominantly brimming with humor, warm sentiment, and festive holiday cheer.
MCT, Martinez, the cast, the crew, and all of the Cratchits, from Bob to Tiny Tim, invite you to get swept up in the glow of the Christmas spirit and human spirit. Watch Scrooge rediscover his humanity and the joy of giving and simple kindness. From Scrooge’s first “Humbug!” of Act I to Tiny Tim’s “God bless us, everyone!” in Act II, the wise and moving words of Dickens will come alive through the song and spectacle of live theatre.
Martinez has also confirmed that Santa Claus is planning to visit the theatre prior to each performance. The jolly man in red is looking forward to chatting with as many children (and adults) as he can! Santa also told Martinez that the song “Christmas Together” from “A Christmas Carol: The Musical” is his current favorite holiday tune; Santa’s been listening to it on repeat on his phone. ‘Tis the season!
