A Christmas Carol

by Charles Dickens, adapted by Preston Lane

a holiday classic

Ebenezer Scrooge’s last chance is one night and three spirits. It’s a life-changing ride through past, present and future as he learns what it means to be human. Triad Stage brings Dickens’ classic story to life in a dazzling production brimming with bold acting, daring design and spine tingling special effects. A Christmas Carol is a ghostly tale of Yuletide cheer, gracious redemption and heart-warming hope for the whole family. 

"A Christmas Carol is a fantastical blend of technical wizardry and traditional storytelling that is a holiday feast for the senses."  -Winston-Salem Journal

Camel City Dispatch
December 14, 2014

 The cast is pitch perfect, the sets are stunning and inventive, and the multi-media presentation dazzles in what has to be one of the best gifts any theater company has given the people of Winston-Salem this or any year.

Victorian, yet modern "Christmas Carol" production strikes clever balance
Winston-Salem Journal / Relish
December 7, 2014

It’s not easy to stage a holiday classic like A Christmas Carol. There’s a balance to be maintained. You want it to be fresh and interesting enough to entertain the adults who bring their children to see the play year after year, but if you change it too much, you risk alienating the audience members who enjoy a more traditional presentation. Triad Stage has struck just the right note with its rendition of Charles Dickens’ tale of transformation. Preston Lane ’s brisk adaptation, directed by Bryan Conger, keeps the action in Victorian England, but there are enough surprises and clever stylistic touches to give the production an edgy, modern feel.

Triad Stage gets in the spirit of Dickens' holiday tale

Andrew Boyer remembers when he fell in love with the theater. He was 11, and his aunt and uncle had taken him to see a production of “The Music Man” in Los Angeles starring Forrest Tucker. “I was so mesmerized,” Boyer said. “I wanted to be up there on that stage. I wanted to do that.” Now he does. Boyer grew up to be a professional actor. He’s based in New York, but will be in Winston-Salem in December playing Ebenezer Scrooge in Triad Stage’s production of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” at Hanesbrands Theatre.
