Ebenezer Scrooge’s BIG San Diego Christmas Show

November 19 – December 26, 2021
(Opening night: Tuesday, November 23)

Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre
Conrad Prebys Theatre Center

By Gordon Greenberg and Steve Rosen
Based on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Ebenezer Scrooge’s BIG San Diego Christmas Show, which had its West Coast premiere at the Globe in 2019, returns to the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Globe’s Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. The Scrooge parody, set in San Diego, is based on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and is written by Gordon Greenberg (Globe’s The Heart of Rock & Roll and Working, London’s Guys and Dolls and Barnum) and Steve Rosen (The Other Josh Cohen, The Curious Case of the Curse of Count Dracula!). This fast, funny, and highly theatrical reimagining is one of the most beloved holiday stories ever told. All the traditional elements of Dickens’s A Christmas Carol are intact—including the iconic ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future—but with a comic local twist. Audiences of all ages will cheer Ebenezer Scrooge’s rediscovery of the Christmas spirit in this riotous Dickens mash-up filled with music and laughter—all set in “wintery” San Diego.

Tickets for Ebenezer Scrooge’s BIG San Diego Christmas Show will go on sale at a later date to be announced.

Ebenezer Scrooge’s BIG San Diego Christmas Show is supported in part by production sponsors The Conrad Prebys Foundation and Leonard Hirsch.
