LITTLE MISS SCROOGE Through Dec. 23. Rubicon Theatre Company presents this Dickensian musical extravaganza, a modern retelling of A Christmas Carol with added characters and plot lines from Great Expectations, Little Dorrit, Bleak House and other great Dickens novels. Estella Scrooge, a young Wall Street tycoon and direct descendent of Ebenezer, is tested beyond her wildest dreams when fate forces her to visit Pickwick, Ohio, on Christmas Eve. There she meets Pip Nickleby who runs a refuge for the homeless and sick. Part love story, part ghost story, Little Miss Scrooge attests to Dickens’ passionate belief in social reform and the overwhelming power of human kindness and generosity. $35-$49; Opening Night Gala, $150. 1006 E. Main St., Ventura.
667-2900 or www.rubicontheatre.org.
