What happened after A Christmas Carol? A year later, Scrooge’s life takes a turn for the romantic—new ghosts (and old pal Jacob Marley) arrive to help him find his lost love, Belle. This joyous score is by Snoopy!!! and Minnie’s Boys composer Larry Grossman and Murder for Two lyricist Kellen Blair and includes wonderful new songs like “Happier,” “The Hours In Between,” “A Kitchen Built for Twenty,” and “Just One Year.” A perfect holiday show for the whole family!

Family & Student Matinees
The best deal in town for kids, parents, and students of all ages. Young people under 18 and college students with a valid student ID can see the show for just $10! Younger students receive a family activity guide, get to participate in an intermission contest (with prizes!), and can join in on a post-show discussion and visit with the actors that includes autographs and pictures. This is a great way to introduce the next generation to the heritage of American musical theatre. This is also a great idea for a kid’s birthday party. Please contact Education Director Dyan McBride for further details or if you have a large group wishing to attend.
42nd Street Moon created the Family Matinee to make musical theatre affordable and accessible for young people along with their parents and to provide families the opportunity to experience classic Broadway. Relevant, fun activities and fascinating discussion guides enable families to rediscover how theatre has served an important function in our nation’s cultural landscape and been a way for families to come together. We have expanded the matinee to be a Family and Student Matinee, so that college-aged students can also take advantage of the generous discount.
