As charming, classic, and irresistible as ever, A Christmas Carol reminds us all of the importance and value of finding our humanity, charity, and humor; and reminds us that it is never too late to seek redemption. Musical and merry, heartfelt and magical, A Christmas Carol is sure to become a holiday favorite for the Bismarck/Mandan.
