"This is no lightweight show in terms of performance or production....A Broadway Christmas Carol is a thoroughly enjoyable holiday show." (read full review) - ARTS à la Mode


Christmas just got a whole lot funnier! The classic Dickens tale told through uproarious song parodies of your favorite Broadway show tunes will leave you rolling in the aisles! This production is a bigger and grander reprise of our 2005 Smash Hit. A Broadway Christmas Carol is fast becoming the new Charlotte Holiday Tradition.


This production is directed by Dr. Elizabeth Peterson-Vita, music directed by Vicki Harvell,  and features staging, lighting and projection design by Broadway trained designer, James Vita.


Actors Scene Unseen is an Award-Winning multidisciplinary production company with musicals, staged productions, live radio theatre, 6 commercial audio CDs, and is a member of the Grammy Recording Academy.
