A Christmas Carol Script Submissions

The cast of A Christmas Carol Trudie Lee (2016 production)


Theatre Calgary is looking for a new adaptation of A Christmas Carol for our 2019-20 season. We are seeking submissions of a new version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol by professional Calgary-based theatre artists.  

If interested, please submit the following:

• A treatment (maximum two-pages) giving us a thorough idea of your vision for Dickens’ world. Be specific. Be daring. And most importantly, be authentic to your own voice. Don’t hold back. 

• One scene of your choice (under five pages long) exemplifying that vision.

We will begin working with the selected adaptation starting mid-March of 2018, continuing with full drafts through the summer.

Please submit your treatment and scene by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, February 19th via email to Jenna Turk, Artistic Associate. Artists must be currently based in Calgary.  Submissions will not be accepted by out-of-town artists, regardless of their previous or current connections to Calgary.
