Featuring David de Vries as Ebenezer Scrooge and Chris Kayser as Jacob Marley

"...with the genius of Charles Dickens and the crème de la crème of Atlanta actors right in front of you, it’s a safe bet that this opulent, funny, moving entertainment will delight you." —Manning Harris for Atlanta INtown

Join the Alliance Theatre for one of Atlanta’s most treasured holiday traditions. On Christmas Eve, 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. With an all-Atlanta cast and beautiful live music, this Broadway-scale production will warm your heart with joy whether you’re coming again or for the first time.  

We are proud to be participating in Carter's Pajama Program this holiday season – please join us.
