Pioneer Theatre Company is putting on a musical production based on Charles Dickens’ classic story, “A Christmas Carol”, but there’s a twist. They’re asking the audience to participate.

Azenberg is asking people to take a lesson from Ebenezer Scrooge – the quintessential miser who learns to give after a transformative encounter with the ghosts of Christmas past, present and yet to come.
It’s the final weekend for a couple of stage productions in Salt Lake City as the cooler weather settles in. Both are cool in very different ways. KUER’s Bob Nelson talks with entertainment contributor Dan Nailen about the two.
