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.
