For many it simply isn’t the holidays without a trip to the Max Bell Theatre and with 31 years of spirited tradition, Theatre Calgary’s A Christmas Carol is Canada’s longest-running holiday theatre production.

Adapted by Theatre Calgary’s former artistic director Dennis Garnhum and starring local stage favourite Stephen Hair as Scrooge, go on a journey through an intricately designed winter wonderland by renowned Canadian designer Patrick Clark.

This season is also the 21st anniversary of annual fundraiser Toonies for Turkeys, so make sure you bring some cash as every $2 donated allows the Calgary Food Bank to distribute $10 worth of food. Tickets always go fast for this holiday tradition so make sure you grab yours quick.

A Christmas Carol runs November 23 to December 24, 2017 at the Max Bell Theatre, Arts Commons (240 9th Ave. SE). Tickets start at $35 and can be found at
