About "A Christmas Carol": As the show opens, we meet Scrooge, and hear and see the actors and sound team enter who has shut down his positive emotions. He can experience no joy and no empathy towards his fellow man. Even on Christmas Eve, and despite his wealth, he has no joy, no sympathy for the suffering of the poor and refuses to do anything to ease the misery of others because he too suffers greatly, though he is completely unaware of his own misery. Join us in this classic tale as we witness the transformation of an old miserable scrooge into a compassionate giving soul.


The theme of A Christmas Carol is that we bless both ourselves and the world when we live in a generous, compassionate, and open-hearted way. Grade 4 and up

The activities presented in these guides are suggested to stimulate lively responses and multi-sensory explorations of concepts in order to use the theatrical events as a vehicle for cross-cultural and language arts learning. Educators are

encouraged to use our suggestions as springboards to lead your students into meaningful, dynamic learning; extending the dramatic experience of the play.
