A Christmas Carol, the Musical

When: Sundays, 3 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Dec. 23 2019

Charles Dickens’ yuletide tale has survived more than a century of adaptations, with everything from live television productions to Muppet movies following Ebenezer Scrooge’s journey from greedy misanthrope to Christmas-loving humanitarian. If it seems overdone at this point, that may be the Bah Humbug energy threatening to overtake our collective Christmas spirit, because there’s no story more appropriate for a yearly, seasonal retelling than this one — maybe with the exception of Love, Actually. Directed by San Antonio College theatre professor Ronald Watson and with choreography from local actress and dancer Kate Ragan, the Woodlawn Theatre’s musical version of A Christmas Carol will be performed every weekend until Christmas, making it hard to come up with an excuse to skip it that doesn’t sound Scroogeian.

Price: $18-$30
