Pittsburgh Musical Theater will present a unique retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas story with its presentation of Ken Gargaro’s “A Lyrical Christmas Carol.”

The Richard E. Raugh Conservatory’s production will run at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 13-15, and at 2 p.m. Dec. 16, at the New Hazlett Theater, 6 Allegheny Square East.

Peppered with favorite Christmas carols, this production tells the Dickens’ tale about the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge. Greeting the spirit of Christmas with a “Bah, humbug,” he is visited by the ghosts of his former business partner, Jacob Marley, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, ultimately learning the true meaning of the Christmas season.

Advance ticket sales until Dec. 9 are $10 for students, military members, and those age 65 and up, and $15 for adults, rising respectively to $15 and $20 at the door.

Tickets for student matinees, at 10 a.m. Dec. 12-14, are $12.

Details: 412-539-0900, ext. 232, or email

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
