'A Christmas Carol' opens Dec. 1

Grady Phillips (Ebenezer Scrooge) and Mikayla House (Ghost of Christmas Past, rehearse a scene from the DeSoto Family Theatre production of "A Christmas Carol, The Musical," which opens Dec. 1 at the Landers Center Theater.

The cast of "A Christmas Carol, The Musical," is inviting the public to purchase their tickets early to see the Yuletide classic which premieres at the Landers Center Theater on Dec. 1.

The curtain will go up on the elaborate DFT production on Friday, Dec. 1. The production will run through Dec. 10.

Grady Phillips stars as Ebenezer Scrooge with Ty Kirk as Young Ebenezer and Jase McCommon as Scrooge at age 8. Ella Scott is Tiny Tim among an all-star cast.

"Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal

wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others," according to Ashley McCormack with DeSoto Family Theatre. "With an infuriated "Bah! Humbug!" Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas

tidings and charitable giving, but he's forced to face his selfish ways

when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present

and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and

greets Christmas morning with a cheerful "Happy Christmas" before spending

the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him."

Showtimes for "A Christmas Carol, The Musical," are Dec. 1 at 7 p.m.; Dec. 2 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.; Dec. 3 at 2 p.m. Dec. 8 at 7 p.m.; Dec. 9 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and Dec. 10 at 2 p.m.
