A Southern Christmas Carol returns to Colquitt after fifteen years! With all new designs and a local cast, this production transplants Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas story to the hot Georgia winter. Ebenezer Scrooge is the crotchety, old proprietor of Scrooge & Marley Cotton right here in Colquitt, Georgia. His housekeeper, Eppie, takes the brunt of his outbursts, but the whole town knows that the stingy old buzzard hates Christmas. It isn’t until he is visited by three ghosts that old Mr. Scrooge learns the true meaning of generosity.
Tickets are $22.

A truly joyful celebration of the spirit of Christmas and community, this show is sure to sell out, so get your tickets now!
