From Radio Plays to Muppet Movies
This story of redemption and hope has become Dickens’s most adapted work in the nearly 180 years since its release. Scrooge’s look might’ve changed, but his message has continued to resonate with audiences young and old. A Christmas Carol is the basis for countless live-action and animated movies, TV shows, operas, ballets, plays, musicals, recorded readings, and even graphic novels. In an age of reboots that get old fast, this tale manages to be the gift that keeps on giving!
