Humber River Shakespeare Will Tour A CHRISTMAS CAROL, Now thru 12/29

Back by popular demand, the Humber River Shakespeare Company presents its annual production of the Dickens holiday classic, A Christmas Carol.

This December, gather with friends and family as five enormously talented actors, armed with exquisite costumes, masks, puppets and a trunk full of other story-telling treasures, bring to life the timeless tale of greed, ghosts and salvation.

This year's tour of A Christmas Carol will visit 10 unique venues including the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Alton Mill, Zion Church Cultural Centre and Casa Loma.

Now entering its seventh season, the Humber River Shakespeare Company continues to offer professional and accessible theatre year-round to communities in the Humber Watershed and beyond - from touring Shakespeare-in-the-Park in the summer, to innovative and original Canadian works in unique spaces in the spring.

Humber River Shakespeare's adaptation of A Christmas Carol started as a reading for three holiday events in Toronto. After two years the script was expanded, scenes, masks and puppetry were added, and the result is an hour long production that audiences have embraced as an annual tradition.

HRSC Artistic Director Kevin Hammond explains the motivation behind the production:

"Performing 'A Christmas Carol' is our way of giving back and sharing a universal message of hope, charity and kindness. It is a treat and an honour to perform the show each year and I am always amazed at how moved the audiences are".

Whether by the fire in a Victorian era hotel at Montgomery's Inn, picturesque gallery theatre of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the vaulted castle walls of Casa Loma, or in the beautifully conceived Alton Mill, this charming one hour performance will warm the hearts of Tiny Tims and Scrooges alike.

Seating is limited. Guaranteed tickets are available on line at (Adults: $20, Children $10)
