NTPA to Present Scrooge the Musical December 8-19

Join NTPA for the eleventh annual production of its beloved holiday tradition, Scrooge the Musical! Based on A Christmas Carol, the musical tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, who has spent his life accruing gold and allowing all his loved ones to slip through his hands. On Christmas Eve 1843, Scrooge is given the gift of one more chance to redeem himself on Christmas Day. Holiday activities include pre-show Christmas carols, holiday concessions, and special photo ops.

This will be the final show of NTPA’s 30th anniversary series.

Two special shows will be Gift to the Community performances. NTPA has gifted the entire house on two Wednesdays to charitable organizations to give back to the community. 

“The Gift to the Community performances are my favorite holiday tradition at NTPA,” says CEO Darrell Rodenbaugh. “It is a beautiful real-life example of our 10th Character, our guiding principles at NTPA, to Love One Another. Over the years we’ve heard stories that for many of our attendees, this was the only ‘Christmas’ they would experience. It’s a true joy to be able to bring a little holiday magic and a beautiful story of redemption to our local community.” 

Santa will attend both Gift to the Community performances.

Tickets are $20 for general admission and $30 for premium seats. Now through December 19th, NTPA is offering a Holiday Package: tickets to ScroogeDisaster (March 11-20), Urinetown (April 22-May 1) for $50. To purchase a Holiday Package for yourself or as a gift, visit ntparep.org
