Celebrate the Power of Christmas
Back for another year, Christmas isn't the same without the beautiful Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. Coming to Edmonton's Citadel Theatre's stage this winter, the heartwarming tale that depicts the magical power that Christmas has to uplift and inspire people is a must-see this time of year. Adapted by David van Belle, the production is directed by Daryl Cloran.
What is the story?
Ebenezer Scrooge doesn't see the point of letting his employees have a day off for Christmas, not even kind Bob Cratchit, whose son Tiny Tim is very sick. Eventually, he is convinced and retires to his room to pass Christmas Eve as he usually does, alone. But this Christmas is different. He has a visitor for a change, the wretched soul of his former business partner Jacob Marley. Doomed to wander the earth for eternity for his sins in life, Marley warns Scrooge of three impending visitations.
In a flurry of fear he meets the gentle Ghost of Christmas Past, the jolly Ghost of Christmas Present, and the terrifying Ghost of Christmas to Come, all of whom want to teach him a lesson...
