Delightful, Enchanting, Refreshing, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy the story. This is a worthy production that’s fun for the family. The sets, music, costumes, performances put a smile on my face.

Don't see it if you’re looking for a highly produced adaptation. This is small scale, and with a tremendous amount of heart.

Entertaining, Funny

See it if you enjoy Christmas shows, have children that would enjoy this type of show. This is a holiday classic thing to do.

Don't see it if if you have seen this show many times. This is not a unique show, enjoyable but unchanged. Some might call it a classic, not me.

Critic Reviews (2)

The New York Times
December 10th, 2009
For a previous production

"As welcoming as this production is, it is not for those under 6 or 7. While the Ghosts of Christmas Past and Present are ebullient, and Marley borders on silly, the Ghost of Christmas Future completely captures Dickens’ vision. Faceless, swathed in black and gliding eerily, it made even the second and third graders near me cringe. And why not? Without menace, the story loses its full moral impact."

For a previous production

"Charles Dickens’ classic novella is being given a delightful and boisterous musical adaptation, presented by Be Bold! Productions and the Players Theatre. Children and adults will be greatly entertained by this brisk production that captures the spirit of the story with much comedy, drama, and unique musical accompaniment...Bell has made it fresh for those familiar with the story, and a great introduction for those who might be experiencing it for the first time."
