Saturday, November 19th, 2022  |  Time: 1:30-5 PM  |  Cost: $30 per person | IRT badge included

Available to all Girl and Boy Scouts, leaders, extra adults, siblings, and youth groups

When you arrive at the Theatre, enjoy a traditional Christmas snack tasty enough for the Cratchit’s feast. Then enjoy the matinee show of A Christmas Carol. After the show you will have the opportunity to meet Scrooge himself in a question and answer session, and then have a dance party where you will learn a jig that will be the envy of the Fezziwigs’ guests. It will be a Dickens of a time at the IRT!
