(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) – Beloved seasonal traditions return to Music Mountain Theatre in Lambertville, New Jersey, and they will make the perfect addition to family traditions!

First, audiences can get in the holiday spirit with the literary classic transformed into a musical spectacle, A Christmas Carol, based on the tale by Charles Dickens. This adaptation of Dickens’ most well-known story has proved its staying power and is now a highly anticipated annual holiday tradition at MMT, delighting audiences for thirteen consecutive years!

Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than happiness, but on Christmas Eve, he is forced to face his selfish ways when three spirits lead him through his past, present, and future. A Christmas Carol features music by Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Newsies) and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Once on This Island, Anastasia).
