"Charles Dickens timeless - and timely - tale of isolation and redemption will lift everyone's spirits" stated BroadwaySF Managing Director Rainier Koeners, "And in this season of giving - when even Scrooge, himself, is transformed, we couldn't think of a better recipient for our audience's generosity as COMPASS FAMILY SERVICES that has long been the gold 'standard for providing families with the services they need to combat homelessness and food security."
