A Christmas Carol


By CHARLES DICKENS
Adapted and Directed by DENNIS GARNHUM
Associate Director SIMON MALLETT

Starring STEPHEN HAIR as Ebenezer Scrooge

Calgary’s favourite Christmas tradition is back! Don’t miss the event the Calgary Herald says “never fails to move its audience” and “feels like the collective start of the holiday season.” Playing to sold-out houses every year, get your tickets early to be part of the magic.


Come out this year as Stephen Hair proudly celebrates 20 remarkable years being Calgary’s holiday curmudgeon, Ebenezer Scrooge. The holidays just wouldn’t be the same in our city without A Christmas Carol would it?  – Dennis

A letter from a young audience member:

"My name is Sage and I attended A Christmas Carol on November 28, 2012 with my school, along with students from Berry Creek.  I live on a ranch and go to school in Youngstown, Alberta.  My school is a small school.  I am the only student in grade nine.  When my school has the chance to go to productions like this, we are all very excited.  I found out about Theatre Calgary from my Language Arts teacher.  I am very glad that we had the chance to attend A Christmas Carol.

I thought the production was fantastic!  I really liked that we were all asked to dress up.  The sets were beautiful and it felt like I was watching a movie.  my favourite scene was when the ghosts were tricking the lady.  I thought that was pretty awesome.  I was really impressed with the Ghost of Christmas Future.  He was so tall! I also liked the Ghost of Christmas Past.

Thank-you for putting on A Christmas Carol, you have made me love live theatre! I plan on coming back to see another production."
