The Guthrie Theater has announced a one-night screening of the 1992 family favorite film The Muppet Christmas Carol in the Dowling Studio at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 15. Seating will be general admission, and the film is recommended for ages 4 and up. Tickets for this special holiday treat are $5 and are on sale through the Guthrie Box Office at 612.377.2224, toll-free 877.44.STAGE and online. Sure you may be able to rent this movie from Netflix but you cannot beat the atmosphere at The Guthrie.
The Muppet Christmas Carol is the hilarious version of Charles Dickens’ Christmas (and Guthrie) classic, featuring film legend Michael Caine as Ebenezer Scrooge and the full cast of beloved Muppet creations including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Gonzo. The film is sure to appeal to today’s children as well as those who grew up watching “The Muppet Show” and its raucous brand of humor.
