He comes back in his dreams where he is visited by folk legend, Sven Yorgenson who is in turn, the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. This hilarious spoof of Charles Dickens’ classic tale A Christmas Carol is sure to delight. Vertigo Theatrics is located at 755 S. Saginaw St., in the old Masonic Lodge in downtown Flint.
