Why See A Christmas Carol?
Ring in the Festive Season with a Christmas Classic!
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 men. The classic tale thrills with its beloved characters and message of compassion, love and kindness and of course, Christmas spirit!
Ever since Charles Dickens first penned A Christmas Carol in 1843, it has seen myriad stage adaptations 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. Don't miss it when it returns Washington once again!
Bah! Humbug! What is A Christmas Carol About?
Ebenezer Scrooge doesn't see the point of letting his employees have a day off for Christmas, not even kind Bob Cratchit, whose son Tiny Tim is very sick. Eventually, he is convinced and retires to his room to pass Christmas Eve as he usually does, alone. But this Christmas is different. He has a visitor for a change, the wretched soul of his former business partner Jacob Marley. Doomed to wander the earth for eternity for his sins in life, Marley warns Scrooge of 3 impeding visitations.
In a flurry of fear he meets the gentle Ghost of Christmas Past, the jolly Ghost of Christmas Present and the terrifying Ghost of Christmas to Come, all of whom want to teach him a lesson...

An Inspector Calls
Daldry's 1992 calling-card production hasn't even begun to settle into some dusty, well-worn groove. In fact, not only is it ever-green fresh but it dawns on you that no other revival in this dying decade has come close to matching its breathtaking darin

The Washington Ballet - The Nutcracker
You are drawn into its Victorian nostalgia by equal measures of rich period costumes and child-friendly fantasy. In fact, its chief pleasure is supplied by the scores of child performers and the dear creatures they play.
