The holiday season is a time for family, imagination, and a little dose of magic. Every year, Theatre Calgary brings us A Christmas Carol, the classic holiday story that has warmed our hearts for generations. If there’s ever a year we needed a little magic, this is it! The story is a reminder to pay attention, be thankful for what and who we have, and reach out to others in compassion and companionship.
Theatre Calgary has been performing A Christmas Carol for 33 years and it has become a beloved holiday tradition for many families. Thankfully, not even Scrooge can mess this up, as Theatre Calgary is committed to performing the timeless story this December, even amid the challenges of 2020! With a new online adaptation you can enjoy from the safety and comfort of your own home, perhaps gathered around the fire or the Christmas tree, families can still meet Scrooge, the Christmas spirits, and Tiny Tim, as they discover what’s really important.
Directed by Stafford Arima, this reimagined production has been filmed with a cast of three, including Stephen Hair, Marshall Vielle Natay’ao’tako, and Jamie Tognazzini, who will fill the hearts of young and old with the spirit of the holidays. These three captivating actors will each play a host of classic Dickens’ characters, bringing A Christmas Carol to life with theatrical savvy. It’s a magical experience when a classic story can be told and one’s imagination can soar. Both kids and parents will love it.
This digital production of A Christmas Carol will be available to everyone for a limited time, from December 11 – 31, 2020. You can purchase digital access for $25 at www.theatrecalgary.com or call 403-294-7447. Whether this is the first time or the 33rd time you’ve seen it, pour the eggnog or mulled cider, prepare a plate of holiday treats, and gather the family to watch this timeless show.
As Tiny Tim observed, “God bless us, every one!”
“Not even Scrooge can prevent our joyous holiday tradition from taking place! Imagine a stage with three enthralling actors playing more than 25 classic characters from Ebenezer Scrooge, to the Christmas spirits, and even Tiny Tim. This year, we are thrilled to bring together the best of Calgary from the film and video world, along with the best-in-class of the theatre world, for a visually scrumptious, at-home experience that will bring this Dickens’ classic to life in an entertaining and powerful way. And yes, Stephen Hair is back as Scrooge! This all-new adaptation of the beloved holiday story will be unlike any Christmas Carol you have seen in the past.” Director, Stafford Arima
