Before you shout “Bah humbug!” at the mere idea of visiting NorthPark Center between now and the New Year, consider this: If anything is worth enduring parking conundrums and creating stroller stratagems for navigating throngs of holiday shoppers, it’s a sweet, comical, free production starring one of Charles Dickens’ most intriguing characters. Ebenezer Scrooge, in marionette form, emerges from his cottage at the top of every hour to interact with the crowd in a throwback performance that has been a Dallas tradition for more than 40 years. The improvisational show transforms during its final date, Dec. 24, when Scrooge is finally filled with a happy Christmas spirit.

NorthPark Center’s whimsical production has been a holiday tradition for four decades. Charles Dickens’ famous character puts on a comical performance for children of all ages, emerging from his cottage at the bottom of every hour. Shows are located on Level 1 near Dillard’s.
