Goodman Theatre's 'A Christmas Carol' Refreshes Holiday Classic for 37th Time

Before Halloween ends, Christmas always begins at Goodman Theatre in Chicago. For the 37th year, the production powerhouse will stage Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" for audiences who can't get enough of the time-honored classic. While the story will be the same, returning director Henry Wishcamper (Goodman's Artistic Associate) will be working with a diverse cast of crowd favorites and newcomers to create a new experience.

From someone who has seen the production twice, here are some things to look forward to: 

Talented Newcomers

Newcomers will include Nathaniel Buescher (age 7, Chicago) as Tiny Tim;  Ava Morse (age 8, Naperville) as Emily Cratchit/Pratt/ Want/Child In The Doorway; Phillip Cusic (age 11, Chicago) as Peter Cratchit/ Ignorance; William A. Burke (age 15, Chicago) as Young Scrooge/Turkey Boy, and Skye Sparks (age 11, Naperville) as Belinda Cratchit. 

A Spectacular Set 

The set is always amazing! You will feel like you are transported back in the 1800s. I would post production photos from previous years but the set always has new and exciting changes. 

Incredible Acting

Larry Yando was born to play Ebenezer Scrooge. His comedic timing, diction, pacing, and facial expressions are the ingredients of a perfect delivery. 

"A Christmas Carol" runs November 15 to December 28, 2014 at Goodman Theatre, 170 N. Dearborn, Chicago, IL.
