A Christmas Carol
by Charles Dickens
adapted by Michael Shamata
UPDATE: Held over to December 23.
A big thank-you to the Belfry Theatre for inviting us out to the opening night of a Christmas Carol. This was our first visit since the renovations to the main lobby which are absolutely breath taking. We couldn’t have had a better night on the town meeting some of the board members, Belfry supporters, and of course, watching such a classic production. You too, can be a part of the festive magic. A Christmas Carol runs through December 17. Tickets can be purchased from the Belfry Theatre Box Office
A ghost story for Christmas, the Belfry’s acclaimed production of A Christmas Carol has returned, along with some of the best-loved Dickensian characters of all time. A story of love, generosity and second chances, it takes us through the darkness and into the light of true joy and celebration!
Why Michael Shamata chose A Christmas Carol
It is simply the most powerful story that I know – for any time of the year, and it is a beautiful way to celebrate the true meaning of the holiday season. It makes people happy and reminds us that it’s not too late to become a better person; to think about others and to be grateful for the love in our lives. I have had a profound relationship with this piece for over a quarter of a century, and could happily spend as much time again in its embrace. —Michael Shamata
