“The Granddaddy of all holiday shows.” –The Seattle P-I

Join us for a Seattle tradition: a ripping good telling of the classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge, the curmudgeonly businessman who requires the intervention of a few spectral guides to understand the true meaning of Christmas and life. Well over a century after its writing, Dickens' classic tale of hope and redemption continues to remind us what's really worth celebratingat the holidays, or any time! 

Enhance your experience with Inside A Christmas Carol: an exclusive backstage tour.
