A Christmas Carol the Musical

The holiday season is just not the same without a bit of Scrooge! Playing for ten years at New York's Madison Square Garden, Charles Dickens' classic gets the full Broadway treatment by Broadway heavy hitters, Alan Menken (Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Disney's The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island) as they reawaken the true spirit of Christmas with a heart-stirring tale of beauty and redemption.

Chicago Theatre Review - Recommended

"...However, despite some minor criticisms, BrightSide, Naperville's only professional theatre, is presenting a truly delightful holiday show that's worth seeing. It's a musical as energetic and entertaining as the Dickens. The show's strength, aside from telling the classic Christmas story, is Alan Menken's solid score. His songs will keep the audience tapping their toes and leave them humming as they exit the theatre. From Miranda Colin's energetic choreography and the lavish backstage orchestral accompaniment, provided by a talented eight-piece band, this hard-working company delivers a festive holiday extravaganza for all ages. Costumed in Shana Hall's array of colorful, period costumes and supported by Ruby Lowe's atmospheric lighting design, BrightSide's sumptuous production is a welcome addition to the menu of holiday treats to be sampled in Chicago."
