Lexington Youth Theater Performance of “A Christmas Carol”
Lexington Youth Theatre is back again with a stage full of youths who are working diligently to delight the community with an early Christmas present — the Broadway production of “A Christmas Carol.”


With a cast of 61 youths from fourth to 12th grade, the production kicked off with a performance at the Barbecue Festival on Oct. 26 and then on stage at the Edward C. Smith Civic Center at 7 p.m. Nov. 7 and 8 and 2 p.m. Nov. 9.


Broadway heavy hitters Alan Menken (Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” and “Little Shop of Horrors”) and Lynn Ahrens (“Ragtime,” “Seussical” and “Once on this Island”) breathe fantastic new life into the classic tale of “A Christmas Carol.”


Don’t miss Ebenezer Scrooge as he bah humbugs Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he’s forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his past, present and future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful “Happy Christmas” before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those who mean the most to him. There will be music, dance and singing by the cast.
