Tickets are now on sale for ‘Scrooge! The Musical’, a delightful holiday show that will leave audiences full of Christmas spirit at Matthews Playhouse December 8-18, 2022


Matthews Playhouse of the Performing Arts is proud to present Scrooge! The Musical, a lively adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol that Broadway World calls a “holiday masterpiece...brimming with Christmas spirit”. Based on the popular musical film starring Albert Finney, Scrooge! The Musical is set in bustling 19th century London. When the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his deceased business partner and three spirits visit one Christmas Eve, he undergoes a transition and receives the greatest gift of all—redemption.


The cast is led by veteran Charlotte actor and local radio personality, Geof Knight, in the title role and newcomer, Leo Walton as Tiny Tim. Charlotte audiences will also recognize actor/director/playwright Charles LaBorde (Jacob Marley), along with celebrated director Paula Baldwin fresh off of directing last summer’s hit, Sister Act. Matthew’s Playhouse Executive Director, Sarah Baumgardner, will be making her Charlotte theatre debut as the Ghost of Christmas Past.
