AUDITIONS: A WINTER'S TALE
This lively musical adaptation of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol showcases both the humor and pathos of Dickens rich 1843 story of spiritual renewal and redemption. A Winter’s Tale uses the tools of a variety of musical theatre styles (pop, rock, calypso, Irish jig, standard) to recreate A Christmas Carol, the classic tale that has become a holiday favorite for children and adults.
