Atlanta Shakespeare Company at The Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse to Present A CHRISTMAS CAROL

The Atlanta Shakespeare Company at The Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse will present Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, adapted by J. Tony Brown and directed by Laura J. Cole.

There is a $15 General Admission Preview on Thursday December 1, 2022 and a
$20 General Admission Preview Friday December 2, 2022. Performances run December 3-23, 2022

A Holiday Tradition at The Shakespeare Tavern for over 20 years, ASC is proud to continue with J. Tony Brown's original adaptation of a timeless classic, as now envisioned by ASC's Director of Education and Training, Laura J. Cole.

A handful of Tavern performers invite you into the wondrous art of storytelling, transporting you to Scrooge's London counting house that fateful Christmas when Ebenezer meets three Ghosts and a certain little boy named Tiny Tim. This enchanting and newly enhanced holiday experience will bring the magic of the season to Scrooge, to The Tavern, and to you. Join us for some Dickens, a bit of song, and the kind of holiday cheer you've come to expect from The Atlanta Shakespeare Company every December.

There will be a post show Q&A on Sunday December 11, 2022.
