BELFAST — The Belfast Maskers present a musical, holiday treat for the whole family with "Bah, Humbug!" Come share the magic of this wonderful musical adaptation of everyone’s favorite Christmas classic the first two weekends in December.

Bill Francoeur’s original music beautifully accompanies this uplifting retelling of Charles Dickens' classic, "A Christmas Story." "Bah, Humbug!" Ebenezer Scrooge sings, dooming himself to visits from three Christmas spirits. With the first ghost, he sees his sister Fanny as they sing "One Last Christmas." Next, Scrooge is taken to the home of his employee, Beth Cratchit, where Tiny Tim sings "God Bless Us, Everyone." Finally, Scrooge watches as the entire town celebrates with "He’s Dead and Buried!" His revelation that "Life Was Meant to Live" brings a heart-warming conclusion to Dickens’ beloved tale.

“Bah Humbug” is directed by Sasha Kutsy at the Basil Burwell Community Theater, 17 Court St. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, Dec. 6, 7, 13 and 14, at 7 p.m. and Sundays, Dec. 8 and 15, at 3 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children younger than 13.
