“A Christmas Carol has been described as the most perfect of Dickens’ works and… it is certainly the most popular. It’s a ghost story with a moral, a message of hope, good cheer, and an assertion of the value of the Christmas festival.” The Guardian (London, UK)

NAC English Theatre Production

In Victorian London, bitter, selfish Ebenezer Scrooge spends Christmas Eve counting his money. But unexpected visits by the ghost of his former partner Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come change his life forever. This heart-warming classic tale of redemption and the true meaning of the season is a unique, stylish new production designed by the acclaimed Bretta Gerecke and showcasing dazzling guest artists from the NAC’s worlds of theatre, music and dance. Join the Cratchit family in a perfect holiday treat for the entire family!

“I’m always looking for a Canadian angle to things, even when they're written by the most iconic of Brits. This Christmas Carol is built around the stars featured in NAC seasons across the disciplines. It’s a perfect opportunity to see the wonderful array of Canada’s best, in one of the world’s best holiday stories.” – Jillian Keiley, Artistic director, NAC English Theatre
