Like a holiday family gathering, three Auburn theater groups will team to present a classic Christmas tale in the heart of the citythis season.

“Scrooge: The Musical” takes place Friday, Dec. 9, through Sunday, Dec. 11, at Auburn Public Theater. The show, a 1992 adaptation by Leslie Bricusse of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” finds the downtown venue collaborating with Auburn Players Community Theatre and Cayuga Community College’s Harlequin Productions. It boasts a cast of more than 40 Auburn-area performers ages 4 to 70 and, in the director’s chair, a relative newcomer to the area in Bill Daugherty.
