It has become a Seattle tradition: a ripping good telling of the classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge, the curmudgeonly businessman who requires the intervention of a few spectral guides to understand the true meaning of Christmas and life. Well over a century after its writing, Dickens’ classic tale of hope and redemption continues to remind us what’s really worth celebrating – at the holidays, or any time! It’s the 37th Anniversary of ‘A Christmas Carol’ at ACT Theatre in Seattle! Get your tickets today for this wonderful family-friendly performance. ‘A Christmas Carol’ is for audiences age 5 and older. No babes in arms allowed. Please arrive on time – no late seating!

First performed in 1985, Unexpected Productions’ ‘A(n Improvised) Christmas Carol’ brings Charles Dickens’s Christmas classic to the stage, but it’s not the story you are used to seeing! In fact, it’s never the same story. Nothing screams “improv” like the old, moldy Dicken’s classic, “A Christmas Carol.” And, once again, the holiday season brings us the annual tradition of “An Improvised Christmas Carol,” at Unexpected Productions. Bring the office, or bring your family & friends. Traditionally, as with other fully improved shows like this one, every show is difference based completely on audience suggestions. Go ahead and let your imagination run wild with that little tidbit of information. Get ready for the laughs. This is a great show for families, shoppers, tourists, and audience members of all ages!
