The Little Theatre of Alexandria is performing a different take of ‘A Christmas Carol’

What if all those ghosts were really a ploy by Tiny Tim to get Ebenezer Scrooge to let his dad off work on Christmas day?

That’s the plot of “Tiny Tim’s Christmas Carol” by Ken and Jack Ludwig. The Little Theatre of Alexandria (600 Wolfe Street) will perform the play from Dec. 3 to Dec. 17 instead of the traditional “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens.

“We’ve been doing ‘A Christmas Carol’ every year for decades,” LTA Board of Governors Chair Russell Wyland told ALXnow. “We’ve been asking how often we can go to the well, and we wondered if people wanted a different take. We didn’t stray too far from the story, but did something a little different.”

There are no distancing requirements, although audience members still have to wear face masks throughout performances. The show is an hour long without intermission.

Tickets cost $23 for all seats and ages.
