A Christmas Carol

Welcome to the ELFBC & ELCA production of “A Christmas Carol”. We are so excited about this opportunity to present a high quality, Broadway styled musical production of this classic Christmas story. We hope you will prayerfully consider being a part of this wonderful production.

Our Vision:
Our heart is to offer our community on the Southside of Atlanta, a spectacular production close to home. This is an excellent way to introduce people to our church and academy and is a “gateway” event to get them onto our campus and excited about all that is going on here. Because it’s a Christmas production, we will use the opportunity to have a live nativity scene where the story of Jesus’ birth is told. We will also use the production to invite people back to our Christmas Eve services the very next week. Our prayer is to see many new families introduced to the Eagle’s Landing family.

About the Show:
This production of “A Christmas Carol” is the musical written by Broadway heavy hitters, Alan Menken (Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Disney's The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island). Menken & Ahrens breathe fantastic new life into the classic tale of A Christmas Carol.

Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes that personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated "Bah! Humbug!" Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he's forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful "Happy Christmas" before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.

A Christmas Carol is a spectacular adaptation of Charles Dickens' most well-known story. Proving its staying power with a decade-long run at the Theatre at Madison Square Garden, A Christmas Carol, is an ideal choice for any theatre hoping to create a holiday tradition.
