The Story

Embrace the season of cheer with the re-telling of a beloved holiday tale based on Charles Dickens’ classic novel, A Christmas Carol, through a musical production by Globe Live together with 9 Works Theatrical presented by Mastercard and Huawei, and co-presented by Fox and Starworld with special thanks to Epson and Bonifacio High Street.  

 

The story follows the transformation of a bitter old miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, into a gentler, tenderhearted man after being visited by the ghost of his former business partner, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come.

 

Make no mistake about it though; Menken and Ahren's A Christmas Carol is neither your usual nor cloying Christmas tale. It invites audiences to take an introspective look at oneself and reminds us all that there are far more valuable things in life than personal wealth. And so just like Scrooge, we hope you, too, will find the true meaning of Christmas.
