Goodman Theatre’s joyous annual production of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol has become one of Chicago’s most celebrated and cherished traditions, as essential to the holiday season as hot cocoa and holly wreaths.
Over the years, A Christmas Carol has enchanted millions of theatergoers with its heart-warming story of redemption, charity and goodwill.
Throughout its 35-year history, the Christmas favorite has featured six directors, eight Scrooges, 31 Tiny Tims and nearly 21,000 “Bah, Humbugs!” Perhaps no other production better represents the Goodman’s three core values–quality, diversity and community:
The Goodman strives to make A Christmas Carol an unforgettable theatrical experience for adults and children alike.
The Goodman’s commitment to diversity is exemplified in all its programs and is notably embodied in A Christmas Carol, in which non-traditional or “color-blind” casting has been the standard since 1984.
A Christmas Carol and the Goodman’s education programs are interconnected through the Student Subscription Series, which serves over 3,000 students annually; the Cindy Bandle Young Critics program; and our newest tradition, Share the Joy Day.
