BROADWAY BOUND 2 CLASS PRODUCTION (featuring the Broadway Kids!)

Join us if you dare for a totally new reworking of this spooktacular holiday classic! The well-known characters from the Dickens' story are here, but spun into modern incarnations. The cold and foggy streets of Victorian London have been replaced by a modern world of mobile phones and social media, where "app"aritions run wild in this riotous, spooky, fun-packed musical extravaganza. With fantastic roles for boys and girls, this is a great chance to jump into the spotlight and shine.  Limited spaces.
