Christmas Carol

adapted & directed by CAROL DUNNE

November 21- December 31, 2023

On Christmas Eve, bad-tempered, miserly Ebenezer Scrooge thinks it’s business as usual. But unbeknownst to him, spirits are congregating to take him on a journey through his past, present, and future in this production reimagined by Producing Artistic Director Carol Dunne. Filled with music and laughter, A Christmas Carol reminds us that it is never too late for kindness and compassion.

Pre-show Event & 12:00PM Performance

We invite you to an afternoon of winter arts & crafts with our community partner rePlay Arts and a Relaxed Matinee Performance of A Christmas Carol afterwards. All are welcome!

A Relaxed Performance is an inclusive theatrical experience that offers accommodations for people who benefit from a more relaxed and comfortable environment. The artistic integrity of the piece remains unchanged, however modifications to the social and sensory environment may be made. Patrons who feel the need to do so are welcome to walk around the theater or take a break in the lobby. House lights may be partially kept on during the performance. A Relaxed Performance can also be beneficial for people who are neurodivergent, families with young children, and anyone who finds traditional performance protocols do not work for their needs.

Pre-show arts and crafts is Free to the Public. Click HERE for tickets if you wish to attend the 12PM Relaxed Matinee Performance.

Join us after the 7:30 PM show for a conversation with the A Christmas Carol company.

Charles Dickens

Original Book

CHARLES DICKENS (1812-1870) was a British novelist who is generally considered the greatest of the Victorian period. His works – characterized by his encyclopedic knowledge of London, powerfully created characters, characteristic speech, and a highly individual and inventive prose style – were even popular in Dickens’ lifetime, appealing to people from every walk of life. After a trip to America, he wrote A Christmas Carol (1843) in a few weeks. Other notable works include Oliver Twist (1937), David Copperfield (1850), A Tale of Two Cities (1859), and Great Expectations (1861). Learn more about Dickens HERE at
