Kansas City Repertory Theatre continues its 2023-24 season with the beloved holiday classic, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, adapted for the stage by Geoff Elliott and directed by Kansas City Repertory Theatre’s Associate Artistic Director of KCRep/UMKC Partnership Jason Chanos. Performances run now through December 24 at Spencer Theatre. Kansas City’s favorite holiday tradition is back for its 43rd season 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 such joy to return to Charles Dicken’s story of transformation and redemption at KCRep for our 42nd year. Live caroling, cookies and cocoa in the lobby at intermission, a family selfie in front of our towering Christmas tree are all a part of our one-of-a-kind holiday experience at KCRep. Join us for the first time or your 40th to experience the magic of A Christmas Carol with KCRep.”
