This year, nobody will be going to a theater to see A Christmas Carol
. No Tiny Tim on stage. No Bob Crachit. No ghosts of Christmas past, present or future frightening and delighting little kids.
But while you can't catch the holiday classic at a theater, don't be a Scrooge: There are plenty of places to watch Christmas Carol
-themed productions online. Here are three:
Manual Cinema's Christmas Carol (Official Teaser) from Manual Cinema on Vimeo. The Robert and Judi Newman Center
University of Denver
Saturday, December 19, 6 p.m.
Manual Cinema is presenting an unusual take on the Charles Dickens classic. In this show, one character begins to put on a Christmas Carol
