About this show

For more than 35 years audiences have treasured the Guthrie's A Christmas Carol, making it a tradition not to be missed. This season the Guthrie presents a fresh take on Dickens' ghost story, featuring a new adaptation by British playwright Crispin Whittell, a dazzling new set and costumes, beautiful music, fantastical aerial effects, and a cast of Guthrie favorites. A miserly and miserable man, Ebenezer Scrooge greets each Christmas with a "bah humbug," until he is visited one Christmas Eve by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future. Through a restless night, the spirits show him happy memories from his past, cruel realities from the present and the grim future should he continue his cantankerous ways. In the Guthrie's production, Scrooge's story of redemption remains as powerful and uplifting as it ever was. Don't miss your chance to share this holiday favorite with your whole family, an experience they will remember for years to come.
