Tickets: A little holiday spirit, ‘Scrooge’ style

Add this share

The campy, giddy holiday fare from Varla Jean Merman and the cast of “Scrooge in Rouge” hit Atlanta last week. Now, we’ve got a pair of tickets for the Thursday and Friday shows to give away. For free.

imageA little about the show:

“Scrooge in Rouge” is set in 1843, the same year Charles Dickens published “A Christmas Carol” that helps inspire this riff on a musical melodrama. Fast-forward to a tatty theater in England where the 20-member cast falls victim to food poisoning as they prepare to stage “A Christmas Carol.” But the show must go on, so the three cast members unaffected by illness work hard to deliver.

Merman (aka Jeffrey Roberson), Ricky Graham and Yvette Hargis master a myriad of dual gender roles while tackling more than 20 characters. (Read our full preview)

But here’s the important stuff:

We’ve got two pairs of tickets to the Thursday and Friday shows to give away to you, our adoring readers.
