The classic holiday tale of mean-spirited Ebenezer Scrooge by Charles Dickens takes center stage in Oakland County Nov. 15-Dec. 22, 2013

"A Christmas Carol is our gift to southeast Michigan. People come back year after year," Meadow Brook Theatre managing director Cheryl Marshall says in a press release. "Maybe they saw it 20 years ago with a school group and now want to share it with their children. It's a magical event," said
