Kansas City’s favorite holiday tradition is back!
The beloved holiday classic, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, has returned to the stage, and all the holiday magic your family knows and loves is back. Adapted for the stage by Geoff Elliott and directed by Kansas City Repertory Theatre’s Associate Artistic Director of KCRep/UMKC Partnership Jason Chanos, you can catch performances at Spencer Theatre now through December 26.
This year marks the show’s 41st season at KCRep and promises an experience that is more magical than ever. Come share the joy of the holiday season, as our theatre transforms into a page right out of the classic tale by Charles Dickens. Richly textured sets, ornate costumes and spectacular special effects will transport the entire family into the tale of the grumpy Ebenezer Scrooge, who requires the intervention of a few ghostly guides to find the true meaning of Christmas – and life itself.
Kansas City Repertory Theatre Artistic Director Stuart Carden stated, “It brings all of us at KCRep such joy to return to indoor live performance with our holiday tradition A Christmas Carol. For more than 40 years KCRep has brought our community together to experience Scrooge’s story of redemption and renewal and it is with deep gratitude, after nineteen months of our theatres being dark, that we welcome you back to the theatre and revive this joyous and meaningful tradition.”
Lead financial support for A Christmas Carol is provided by US Bank and the Celebrating our Heritage Fund – Miller & Jeannette Nichols.
