A Christmas Carol

By Charles Dickens
Adapted and Directed by Dennis Garnhum
Featuring Benedict Campbell

Extended! Now playing through December 31
Spriet Stage

Ring in the holidays with the whole family at the largest production in Grand history. The all-time classic A CHRISTMAS CAROL is a joyous celebration brimming with music, dance, and good cheer! This is the holiday event of the season, overflowing with surprises and featuring 21 cast members, all of your favourite carols, and one of the grandest sets to grace our stage.

In Dickens’ timeless story, cold, hard Ebenezer Scrooge is given one “last chance” to transform himself from a humbug into a joyful and caring soul through visits from the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.

This production marks my directing debut at the Grand with my own adaptation of this adored holiday classic. This is one of the great enduring stories – requiring the use of extraordinary the­atrics and excessive imagination. I look forward to sharing my whimsical and surprising version with you.” – DENNIS GARNHUM, Artistic Director

In the spirit of holiday giving and ongoing community support, the Grand Theatre launches the #HumbugtoHunger campaign in support of the London Food Bank and the Business Cares program. The plight of the Cratchit family is real and is felt every day in our own city. Over 3400 families access the London Food Bank each month. During A Christmas Carol, patrons will have an opportunity to make a monetary donation to the London Food Bank.
