A Christmas Carol

Bah, humbug! At this time of year, Charles Dickens’s tale of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge’s redemption one Xmas eve is ubiquitous – on TV and even in local theatres. But Three Ships Collective and Soup Can Theatre’s version of the tale – with original text by Justin Haigh and imaginative direction by Sarah Thorpe – offers something different: an intimate, immersive version of the story that fits in beautifully in the Victorian-era Campbell House Museum. A sold-out hit last year, it’s back, with a slightly changed cast, but all of the charm.

November 30-December 22.Campbell House Museum (160 Queen West). $20-$35. See ChristmasCarolTO.com for days and times.
