No matter where we go, though, we’ll meet heroes and heroines who, when faced with challenges, bravely charge into their futures and make things happen. So, buckle up, dare to dream, and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime. Seize the day!

A passing stranger is welcomed into Salem Tavern by a cheerful group celebrating Christmas Eve. The story he tells them is magical, and yet vaguely familiar…
It’s 1887, and hard times have fallen on the people of Winston and nearby Salem.  Tobacco rolling machines are replacing manual jobs, and bad rains have hurt farms.  Making things worse is Ebeneezer Scrooge, a lender who’s foreclosing on mortgages and ruining the holidays for everyone.  In the heart of Old Salem, can three spirits teach him the true meaning of Christmas?  This heartwarming world premiere adaptation was written exclusively for The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem.
