Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Christmas Carol
This Christmas, Dickens’ tale gets a Tennessee twist in a brand new musical with a soundtrack written by Dolly Parton.
Set during the 1930s in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, this heart-warming and unforgettable production imagines Scrooge as the owner of a mining town; his callous greed is blinding him to the joys and gifts of the season.
Three ghosts visit Scrooge, and compel him to see life anew, as he discovers that love is the most precious gift.
Dickens’ classic characters and Parton’s one-of-a-kind songwriting as well as storytelling expertise are certain to make this the most joyful Christmas event.
Dolly Parton: ‘I’ve been busy writing new songs that I hope will bring some of the warmth, love and also good memories that I have of Christmas time in the smoky mountains of my youth.’
