CAJUN XMAS (5).png



It is 1887 in Gonzales, Louisiana. Ebenezer Scrooge, a wealthy banker who made his fortune foreclosing on bankrupted homes after the Civil War and lending money at high interest rates, is visited by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley, and the three Spirits of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet-to-Come. Through these travels and visions, Scrooge becomes a much kinder and gentler man to the citizens of Gonzales.


This timeless classic has been given a Cajun flavor, reimagined in the newly-growing town of Gonzales. Historical figures from Gonzales’ past make appearances on the stage as Scrooge visits the townspeople he has exploited and squeezed for his massive wealth. Come help us retell this Dickens’ masterpiece, adapted to our very streets!

Dates : October 9th & 10th
