"As Madison's finest holiday tradition, this is much more than a play. It's an event the whole family can enjoy. A mark-it-on-the-calendar and get-a-little-dressed-up kind of day. Step back in time to Victorian England for a wild seasonal ride. It's the jouney of Scrooge from curmudgeonly miser to all-around good guy. And speaking of good guys, Scrooge is played to perfection by James Ridge of American Players Theatre in this, our signature production."
