Why See A Christmas Carol?

MusicalsFamily ShowsHoliday & Christmas ShowsCritics PicksChristmas Carol

A tradition for over 40 years

Since its debut in 1978, millions of Chicagoans - adults and children alike - have been thrilled by this timeless tale of Scrooge and his voyage into Christmas past, present, and future.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In this beloved story, miser Ebenezer Scrooge is taught the true meaning of Christmas by a series of ghosts who show him his past, present and future.

A Christmas Carol has become the first theater-going experience for thousands of children and is an annual family ritual. At any Christmas Carol performance one can hear a parent telling her children about the first time she encountered Marley's ghost as a child in the Goodman audience, or family groups gleefully comparing last year's edition of the show to its predecessors.

The music, the dance, the awe-inspiring effects accompanying the arrivals of ghosts, the antics of Scrooge as he rediscovers the joy of Christmas Day - all are compelling magnets for young audiences, giving them the kind of thrilling experience that can only happen in a live theater performance. Perhaps more than any other single production, the Goodman's A Christmas Carol embodies the three cornerstones that Robert Falls and his collaborators aspired to achieve for twenty years and that will guide the Goodman into the future: a striving for artistic quality onstage and off, a commitment to diversity and a dedication to bringing the work of the theater to the entire Chicago community.

This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.
