A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

November 25 to December 24, 2016 | On the Alliance Stage
Part of the Family Series

"For now, let us bask in the splendors before us: the crèmè de la crèmè of the Atlanta theater community all tied up here under one big bow. (Literally, if you look at D Martyn Bookwalter’s set, with its soaring arched window, festooned with red ribbon.)...[a] masterful Dickens adaptation..." —Wendell Brock for AJC

Join the Alliance Theatre for one of Atlanta’s most treasured holiday traditions. On Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by ghosts offering him a chance at a better future—his old partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future—who teach him it is never too late to change. Celebrate the holidays with the beloved Dickens classic in this Broadway-scale production with beautiful live music and an all-star Atlanta cast. It will warm your heart with joy whether you’re coming again or for the first time.
