Goodman Theatre
170 N. Dearborn Street, (312) 443-3800

November 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014
A Christmas Carol
“There’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit” (Chicago Sun-Times) than experiencing the magic of Goodman Theatre’s A Christmas Carol. For 37 years, Charles Dickens’ holiday classic has delighted Chicago audiences; the production has hosted seven directors, 32 Tiny Tims and eight Scrooges, who’ve snidely delivered nearly 23,000 “Bah Humbugs!” A Christmas Carol is the iconic tale of greedy British businessman Ebenezer Scrooge, whose sizable bank account is only matched by his hatred of the holidays. One Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by four ghosts who take him on an spectacular adventure through his past, present and future, helping him rediscover the joys of life, love and friendship.

December 5, 2014 – December 28, 2014
Twist Your Dickens
Goodman Theatre and The Second City team up to present a hilarious send-up of the Dickens holiday classic A Christmas Carol. The famous Victorian streets spring to frenzied life as Scrooge, Tiny Tim and those know-it-all ghosts find themselves hopelessly mixed up with characters from the Peanuts holiday special, the island of misfit toys and even little orphan Annie. Add in Second City’s trademark improvisation and it makes for a heaping host of holiday hilarity. The Second City’s Twist Your Dickens is written by former The Colbert Report writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort.
