Force your employees to work on Christmas and you may just get haunted by a trio of ghosts who won’t put up with your capitalist crap.

But really, Ebenezer Scrooge is an iconic force during the holidays because he reminds us to put down our billfolds and think of the moments that really matter — the reason for season, some might say. Gather your family, eat some warm grub and then see this heartwarming Charles Dickens’ tale come to life in Playhouse in the Park’s annual production of A Christmas Carol.

Watch as the ghosts of past, present and future show this curmudgeonly old man the error of his ways and — most importantly — that it’s never too late to change.

As CityBeat reviewer Rick Pender once wrote: “If you haven’t seen it, give yourself a present and do so.”

Nov. 21-Dec. 29. $30-$86. Playhouse in the Park, 962 Mount Adams Circle, Mount Adams, cincyplay.com.
