A "timeless message of generosity's triumph over greed."

Nov 17 - Dec 30, 2018 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours, 15 minutes with 1 intermission

Don't miss the "perfect holiday treat for the family" (ABC-7).

Goodman Theatre’s classic A Christmas Carol is the heartwarming story of Ebenezer Scrooge’s discovery of kindness, compassion and redemption—a must-see Chicago holiday tradition enjoyed by 1.5 million theatergoers for over four decades. “Topnotch performances, spirited song-and-dance numbers” (Newcity), “amazing sets, gorgeous costumes and eye-popping effects” (Chicago Reader) bring to life ”the best Christmas story ever told” (Time Out Chicago).
