The Little Theatre of Alexandria celebrates the holiday season with a return of Charles Dickens’ heartwarming classic “A Christmas Carol.”

An endearing portrait of mid-nineteenth century England, the age-old tale features Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly Victorian humbug, who travels with ghostly guides through Christmas past, present, and future to find the true meaning of the holidays.  Replete with special effects, lavish Victorian costumes and the ever-precious Tiny Tim, this family-friendly seasonal reprise is drawn from the original text and perfectly adapted for the stage by Donna Ferragut.

Under Robin Parker’s smooth direction this holiday special sparkles like freshly fallen snow.

A “Christmas Carol” runs through December 18. For tickets and information call 703-683-0496 or visit
