Charles Dickens' classic tale of spiritual turnaround was first conceived in 1843 as a way to stir up compassion for the poor and downtrodden. Scrooge, the grizzled old businessman, despises Christmas as a sham that gets in the way of his moneymaking. It takes a warning from the ghost of his dead business partner and visits from The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Future for the old coot to rethink his greed and misanthropy.

A Christmas Carol will be performed by Theater Works at the Peoria Center for the Arts, 8355 West Peoria Avenue. General admission tickets are $13 each. Performances run through Saturday, December 22. Visit or call 623-815-7930 for more information. -- Jose Gonzalez
