A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol is the Broadway adaptation of Charles Dickens’ 1843 Christmas tale.
A Christmas Carol tells the story of the curmudgeonly Ebenezer Scrooge. A prosperous businessman, he believes that personal wealth and heartless financial tactics are much more valuable than the friendship, happiness, and comfort of those around him. He treats his employee, Bob Cratchit, and his family with the same disdain and coldness that he shows everyone else. Scrooge’s miserable nature comes to a crescendo during the Christmas period–“Bah! Humbug!” However, this Christmas, he is forced to come face to face with his selfish ways when he is confronted by three ghosts on Christmas Eve: the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Future. In the course of one night, Scrooge is forced to recognize his faults and gains the chance to make amends. He greets the dawning Christmas morning with an unusually cheerful, “Happy Christmas” and finally reconnects with those that mean the most to him.

The Importance of Being Earnest
This hilarious Victorian romp is the most renowned of Oscar Wilde’s comedies. It’s the story of two bachelors, John ‘Jack’ Worthing and Algernon ‘Algy’ Moncrieff, who create alter egos named Ernest to escape their tiresome lives. They attempt to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest.

Performances August 2, 3 and 4 2024
Based on the 1968 film and written by Mel Brooks, this deliciously offensive musical is a laugh-out-loud, outrageous, crowd-pleasing farce that has been a smash hit since its debut. Fading Broadway producer Bialystock is desperate to get to the top of his profession again, and he finds an unlikely ally in mousy accountant Bloom, who hypothesizes that one could make far more money with a flop of a show than with a hit. Together, the two set out to produce the worst musical ever, with the worst script, the worst director, and the worst cast they can find; the catch is that they will somehow raise two million dollars to finance the show, and then plan to take the money and head to Rio when the show inevitably closes after just one performance! Full of wild characters, glitzy showgirls and in your face comedy, you’re absolutely sure to have a gay time. Not for the easily offended, this show makes a great date night out that will be full of laughs.
Performances every weekend between September 6 – October 13 2024
Believe In Christmas - Calling You Home
Several decades ago, the big ticket holiday event would have included cozying up in front of the TV to watch a fun Christmas Variety show. The best of these had an undeniable charm that you just can’t find in the holiday programming of today. We recommend taking a break during this hectic season. Have a hot chocolate from our saloon (add some schnapps, after all- it’s Christmas!) bring the entire family and join us for a beautiful, nostalgic evening, as we welcome you home to GCT.
