A Christmas Carol

by Charles Dickens
Adapted by Robert Rooney

Best Wishes

With this production of Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol, we celebrate our 17th and final theatre and holiday season at the QR Centre.

The theatre season is off to a great start with the highly successful Showcase Series production of A Streetcar Named Desire and the critically acclaimed TC NOW! Series production of Cloud 9. Storefront, our artists drop-in centre, also opened this year. It provides the company with the opportunity to program public workshops and children's drama classes and serves as much needed additional rehearsal space.

The New Year holds the promise of the four varied and dynamic productions remaining in the Showcase Series. As well, in January, we will open a very special production, alternating English and French performances, of Michel Tremblay's Forever Yours Marie-Lou at the Jubilee Auditorium's Dr. Betty Mitchell Theatre. 1985 promises to be a year of challenge and excitement as we move to the Calgary Centre for Performing Arts. 

In the spirit of Einstein's statement that "the only objective worth pursuing is peace on earth and good will to all men", I extend on behalf of our Board, volunteers and staff to you and yours, best wishes for this holiday season and the New Year.
