This celebrated adaptation by Charles Jones of "A Christmas Carol" is packed with laughter, pageantry, music and gorgeous costumes. Every memorable detail of Dickens’ 1843 same-titled novel springs to life—from spine-chilling ghosts to heartfelt renditions of traditional British carols, including “The Holly and the Ivy,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman,” and “Coventry Carol.” Crotchety Scrooge, lovable Tiny Tim and all the fascinating characters we have come to love make Charles Dickens’ enchanting story a treasured holiday event.
