Tonight changes everything.
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. In a reprise of last season’s highly acclaimed production, Triad Stage brings Dickens’ classic story to life in a dazzling production brimming with bold acting, daring design and spine-tingling special effects. The return of our newest holiday tradition for the Triad is a ghostly tale of Yule-tide cheer, gracious redemption and heart-warming hope for the whole family.
On opening night of A Christmas Carol, a theatre-goer was overheard to say, “The season has not started until I come down here and see this.” Wait a minute! This is only the second year of Preston Lane’s adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Already a tradition? So it would seem. Yes, A Christmas Carol is back at Triad Stage, and with it comes all the wonderful effects, wacky characters, seasonal sentiment, and spectacular staging, all tied up in a sparkling – and spooky –package.
