    A Christmas Carol

    [NOTE: CANCELED DUE TO COVID] Zach Theatre's adaptation of the Dickens classic is "a musical sleigh ride through rhythm and time, infusing the traditional Victorian story with a score that spans all genres and eras," as directed by Dave "Hardworkin'" Steakley. Which is all well and good, but we're happiest because Austin's own Marc Pouhé plays that Ebenezer Scrooge. [NOTE: CANCELED DUE TO COVID]
    Through Dec. 31. Times vary. $25.
