The Augusta Players Family Christmas Special (Virtual)

Don’t miss this non-stop holiday extravaganza is a celebration of all of the joyful things that we look forward to during the holidays. You know… the fun things that happen during a “normal” family Christmas: decorating the house inside and out; Christmas parties; the anticipation of Santa arriving; wrapping (and putting together) Christmas presents. Except the Jingle family isn’t very good at ANY of those things – especially Barry, the dad, who breaks almost everything, including himself. And worse yet, little Billy Jingle doesn’t believe in Santa and to prove it, is being as bad as possible, thinking he’ll get presents anyway.

The festive fun is framed by well known Christmas music standards loaded with wonderful musical surprises, all presented in new arrangements of big, swinging production numbers! Silliness and your favorite sounds of the season are all wrapped up in The Augusta Players Family Christmas Special!

It’s Christmas craziness for the whole family broadcast to your Smart TV on The Augusta Players YouTube channel and our Facebook Page. Each ticket is a pay per view for your family or group. A link to the performance will be emailed to you no later than 2 hours before show time!

The Jingle Family and The Augusta Players can’t wait to share a little of the holidays with you!

Tickets: $22

The Augusta Players present A Christmas Carol: Link by Link LIVE!

Famous the world over and an Augusta holiday tradition!

Join us in a new way for the heartwarming story of Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and Tiny Tim as it’s now told through the eyes of Jacob Marley in this brand new, WORLD PREMIER, play adaptation written specifically for The Augusta Players.

Brought to you as a LIVE Zoom play.

This production is directed by Rebecca Brune and stars many of your Augusta Players favorites as it is streamed directly to your living room on your Smart TV through The Augusta Players YouTube Channel on on Facebook for FREE!

A goodwill donation in any amount is appreciated!

Welcome into your home this Christmas story and its timeless virtues. This new virtual theatre adaptation is a piece of unique eloquence, which will delight audiences of all ages! Spoiler alert, as the play’s title fairly gives up the ghost. Things are, for the most part, as they seem — but instead of seeing the story from the point of view of Ebenezer Scrooge as we have before, we are afforded a glimpse into the life and afterlife of Jacob Marley. All your favorites are still there as well – The ghosts, the Cratchit family, Mr. Fezziwig and even a family choir!

Get your free ticket to the performance for your family or group today! An email will be sent to you with the “LINK” no later than 30 minutes before the performance.
