4) If Scrooge Was A Brother at Jubilee Theatre

Get to Jubilee Theatre in Sundance Square to experience Jubilee’s twist on a Classic Holiday Tale.  It’s Christmas Eve and Eb Scroo is seeking to snuff out the season’s cheer by demanding all debts owed him be satisfied before nightfall. Facing imprisonment, a Christmas without presents and a feast, the residents are desperate. In this urban spin of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, the ghosts and characters are icons of Black culture performing holiday songs with a modern twist.

Get to Casa Manana in Fort Worth’s Cultural District and find out if a band of snowy misfits help Jack find his destiny and restore order to the kingdom?
