‘A Christmas Carol’ coming to Neepawa


Neepawa Banner & Press

Cold-hearted and greedy, Ebenezer Scrooge is anything but jolly at Christmas time.

Even his nephew Fred and clerk Cratchit get nothing but a “bah humbug” when spreading holiday cheer. But something shifts when the ghost of his business partner Marley visits to save him from his own bitter demise. Watch his epic transformation in this classic tale of compassion, hope and redemption that will leave hearts glowing.

Adapted to a one-man play, this charming holiday classic will provide festive entertainment while melting frosty hearts. As Royal MTC’s annual regional tour, A Christmas Carol travels to 24 communities across Manitoba and Northern Ontario from Nov.19 - Dec. 21.
