Don't miss Chris Kayser's 20th production and final season as Scrooge!

"Stories like A Christmas Carol become classics for a reason. Brilliant writing, vivid characters, and a story that touches on the human condition that bears up under repeated revisiting. It's kept me coming back for 20 years." —Chris Kayser

Celebrate Atlanta’s finest actors in this magnificent staging of Charles Dickens's classic Christmas tale. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by four ghosts offering perspective: his old partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. A magical tradition for the whole family, and a great way to see the work of Atlanta's best actors portraying Dickens’s beloved characters.

Alliance Rendering 1

The Alliance Theatre has released final design renderings of its theater transformation, which is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017. This is the first major building reinvention for the theater since its construction in 1968 as part of the Woodruff Arts Center campus. The Alliance Theatre will perform its 2017/18 season in 12 different locations in the metro Atlanta area, bringing live theater out into the community it serves. The Alliance plans to return to its new theater space for its 50th anniversary season in the fall of 2018.
