A Christmas Carol

November 25 - December 17, 2016

By Charles Dickens • Adapted by Reba Hervas

The must-see family tradition that marks the beginning of Overshadowed’s 2016-2017 season, A Christmas Carol is a delightfully reimagined take on Dickens’ enduring classic. A miserly and miserable man, Ebenezer Scrooge greets each Christmas with a “bah humbug,” until he is visited one Christmas Eve by the Ghosts or Christmas Past, Present and Future and they show him his future if he continues in his current miserable ways. Join us as Scrooge visits the Overshadowed theatre, where the audience will be surrounded by magical ghosts, Festive cheer, and of course… snow! Scrooge’s story of redemption remains as powerful and uplifting as it ever was. Don’t miss your chance to share this perennial holiday favorite! It’s an experience you will treasure for years to come.

Performing at 900 Foster Avenue in Medinah, Illinois.

Everyone’s favorite practically perfect nanny takes the stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure.
One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven TONY Awards, including Best Musical.
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren’t the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that ‘Anything can happen if you let it’.

Mary Poppins is an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers, and astonishing stagecraft.
