The stage show based on Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is returning to Los Angeles’ longest-running children’s theatre next month.
The Nine O’Clock Players production of “Mr. Scrooge” opens Sun., Nov. 6, and runs through Dec. 3 at the Assistance League of Los Angeles Theatre for Children — 1367 N. St. Andrews Pl., Hollywood.
The play is set in 1871 London, England. Mr. Scrooge, whose focus in life is making money, considers celebrating Christmas a waste of time.
Visiting him on Christmas Eve, three spirits show Scrooge both what a greedy miser he has become and the fate that lies in store for him if he doesn’t change.
The Assistance League of Los Angeles has been producing plays since 1929 with the mission to introduce children to the magic of live performance, literature and music through theatre. The League’s Nine O’Clock Players Auxiliary performs two plays annually chosen from classic children’s literature.
Tickets are $15. For more information, visit nineoclockplayers.com.
