It’s already November and Christmas is just around the corner! What’s a better way to celebrate Christmas than to see one of the most iconic holiday shows in the world! Globe Telecom, in partnership with 9 Works Theatrical, presents Menken & Ahrens’ A Christmas Carol this December 2016!
I was lucky enough to be one of the few who caught the preview of the show. I’m a big fan of musicals and the local musical theater scene has really been hitting kind of a golden age! And now we’re treated to some of the most popular and iconic Broadway musicals and shows, yay!
“The value and lessons the show brings is perfect for the family and this will surely be a must-see show for the holiday season. The story of A Christmas Carol has spanned generations but remains relevant even to this day with the life lessons it carries. The whole team is thrilled to put together this production and we all look forward to the wonder this will bring to every Filipino family,” says Globe Stores and Retail Transformation Head, Joe Caliro.
A Christmas Carol will show the values of love for the family and friends through the lead character Ebenezer Scrooge, a prosperous but bad-tempered person who prioritizes wealth over happiness of others. Due to his selfish attitude, three ghosts visit him on Christmas Eve that will bring 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 that mean the most to him.
The production is boasting of a cast of 30 well-known and emerging talents in the theater industry, which is one of the biggest casts that 9 Works Theatrical has ever had, according to them. 🙂
The production show dates will start on December 1, 2016, 6:00 P.M. at the Globe ICONIC Entertainment Zone, BGC Amphitheater, Taguig. I’m extremely excited!
