I'm always looking for a Canadian angle to things, even when they're written by the most iconic of Brits. It's a perfect opportunity to see the wonderful array of Canada's best, in one of the world's best holiday stories.

Why See A Christmas Carol?

Ottawa's holiday tradition returns in a new production!

Ottawa's National Arts Centre is set to stage their annual performance of Charles Dickens' iconic holiday play, joined by a cast of the company's brightest stars! This brand-new staging is designed by Bretta Gerecke, with new sets and costumes, to tell the story of ultimate redemption. Penny pinching and bad tempered old miser Ebenezer Scrooge goes on the adventure of his life, from his past to his present and beyond and learns that the value of gold will never equal that of genuine love for his fellow man.

Ever since Charles Dickens first penned A Christmas Carol in 1843, it has seen myriad stage adaptations across the world.and the popularity of this tale of redemption and second chances has seemingly never waned. From stage to screen, opera to one man show, it is one of the most influential Christmas shows and a traditional holiday outing that defines the joy of the Yuletide period for most of us. One man's journey from avarice and hatred takes him through three stages of his life, to show him the error of his ways; ultimately the story of Scrooge speaks out to each of us, as it is up to Scrooge himself (and by extension, us) to become the best person we can be.
