Eight-time Grammy winner and one of our most beloved storytellers, Dolly Parton (who is not appearing in the production) has re-written a legendary holiday tale as a new American classic musical. Set in the 1930s in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, this incredibly heartwarming and truly unforgettable production imagines Ebenezer Scrooge as the owner of a mining company town, where his callous greed blinds him to the joys and gifts of the season. As a Christmas Eve snowstorm approaches, Scrooge is visited by his deceased business partner and three ghosts who compel him to see life anew and discover that love is the greatest and most precious gift we have. Dickens’s classic characters and Parton’s one-of-a-kind songwriting expertise are certain to make this a holiday event you’ll want to share with those you love.
“I’ve been busy writing new songs that I hope will bring some of the warmth, love and good memories that I have of Christmastime in the Smoky Mountains of my youth,” said Dolly Parton.
Throughout her illustrious career, the 73-year American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actress, author, businesswoman, and humanitarian, has been an ambassador for the Great Smoky Mountains where she was born and raised. Her love for this region and its people are woven throughout the music and songs and beautifully tells this classic story in a whole new light.
