The run continues Friday, Dec. 19 with a performance at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 20 with performances at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

McKinney Repertory Theatre’s production has become a tradition for many families. Since its first performance of the show in 2006, thousands of people have started their Christmas season with McKinney Repertory Theatre’s “A Christmas Carol.” Dr. Harris’ adaptation of Dickens’ tale tells the story of the curmudgeonly miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, who refuses to get into the holiday spirit until three ghostly visitors lead him on a trip through Christmases past, present and future.
