Welk Theatre presents "A Christmas Carol"

Welk Resort Theatre, located in Escondido at the historic Welk Resort, is presenting its production of "A Christmas Carol" through Dec. 31.

Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken ("Beauty and the Beast," "The Little Mermaid") breathes new life into the moving tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, an irascible, cold-hearted grump who despises all things Christmas — that is, until he's visited by three ghosts one fateful Christmas Eve. Watch as Scrooge, forced to face his selfish ways, finds the true meaning of love and gratitude. It's an enduring family classic.

"A Christmas Carol" runs Thursdays and Saturdays at 1 p.m. and 8pm; and Wednesdays and Sundays at 1 p.m. Tickets are $59. Add a pre-show meal for $21. Contact the box office at (888) 802-7469 or online at www.welkresorts.com/san-diego/theatre.
