The beloved classic “A Christmas Carol” will come to the Stephens College stage for the first time in more than a decade. Performances take place at 7:30 p.m. from Dec. 6-7 and 11-12, and at 2 p.m. on Dec. 8 at Macklanburg Playhouse.

Directed by Courtney Crouse, a 2004 Stephens graduate, the production will star resident actor and theatre professor Rob Doyen as Scrooge. While the production is a family friendly, all-ages show, Crouse said this particular telling will be “spookier” than most.

“This is the story of one man’s final chance at redemption,” Crouse said. “With ‘A Christmas Carol,’ Charles Dickens gives us a tale that stands the test of time — a story reminding us that we’re all here to make the world a better place for ourselves and those around us.

“Start your holiday off right by joining us for this classic story as told by the cast and company of Stephens College.”

The production is sponsored by Columbia Marketing Group, Joe Machens Dealerships, KFRU News Talk 1400 AM, Landmark Bank, Shelter Insurance, the Sinek Family and Veterans United Home Loans.

Tickets are $16 general admission, $10 for students and seniors, and free for Stephens College students. To purchase, contact the Stephens College Box Office at (573) 876-7199 or, or visit the box office website.
