A timeless holiday tradition, the Goodman's production of A Christmas Carol celebrates the yuletide season by infusing Charles Dickens' classic tale with a little bit of magic, as only the Goodman can.

Goodman Theatre's A Christmas Carol has delighted Chicago audiences since the very first production over thirty years ago when the Chicago Tribune raved: "magic took over the show."

Charles Dickens' classic story, the exceptional actors and the miraculous stagecraft have made A Christmas Carol a beloved Chicago tradition. Every year, audiences look forward to the "Bah Humbugs," the arrival of the ghosts, the music and dancing and Scrooge's joyful discovery of life and love.
