“A Christmas Carol” is “a story of greed, grief, ghosts and ultimately, generosity,” according to a news release from CMU.

“This traditional favorite follows the miserable and miserly Ebenezer Scrooge’s overnight journey to redemption. The story brings to life such memorable characters as Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchet and Mr. Fezziwig as well as, of course, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future,” the news release said.
