The Magnetic Theatre presents Caroling by Gaslight, a deviously twisted and darkly hilarious retelling of the Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, running December 2nd through 17th, 2022.

Everyone knows the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, the tightfisted old miser. But if you thought he was bad, wait until you get a load of his neighbors! Sick of Scrooge’s nasty attitude (not to mention the massive debts owed him by everyone in the neighborhood) London’s layabouts hatch a plot to free themselves of his greedy grasp— by scaring him to death! When the original plan takes a turn for the complicated, the ragtag rabble must scramble even more elaborate and absurd machinations to take the old man down. And for these unscrupulous deviants, there’s no gambit too grotesque to try!
