Ken Gargaro’s A Lyrical Christmas Carol, written by Ken and Jane Gargaro, continues its run with Pittsburgh Musical Theater’s Richard E. Rauh Conservatory Theater Company. The centuries have seen countless stage versions of this Christmas tale by Charles Dickens, and though we cannot say where Gargaro’s A Lyrical Christmas Carol ranks among them, the musical is a guaranteed treat. Gargaro was founding director of the PMT’s school and performance center. His and Jane’s A Lyrical Christmas Carol premiered in 1991 and has been delighting audiences ever since. The show tells the story in an engaging, moving way and features some song-and-dance numbers that will send you home in a supercharged holiday spirit. With Jeremy Czarnick as Scrooge. 7:30 p.m. Through Dec. 21. New Hazlett Theater, 6 Allegheny Square East, North Side. (Fun fact: Jane Gargaro was this writer/editor’s English teacher at Peabody High School. She was an excellent and popular instructor!)
