Clever, Delightful, Great acting, Great staging, Enchanting

See it if You like A Christmas Carol and want to see it done well and briefly (75min). I had a wonderful time. The acting was great and so much fun.

Don't see it if You don't like short plays or have hearing problems. They often speak barely above a whisper which makes it difficult to hear at times.
