Grand Theatre Announces Extension Of A CHRISTMAS CAROL
The Grand Theatre is thrilled to announce that A CHRISTMAS CAROL will be extended due to high demand. Dennis Garnhum's directorial debut at the Grand, featuring Ben Campbell, Blythe Wilson, Alexis Gordon, and Ian Deakin in a cast of 21, has become an audience favourite since it opened a week ago. A CHRISTMAS CAROL will be extended with one additional performance on Sunday, December 31 at 1pm.
The production opened to a 5-star review from the London Free Press, "What makes this show "epic" is Garnhum's delicious adaptation, which is a feast for the senses enhanced by outstanding performances led by Benedict Campbell in the starring role of Ebenezer Scrooge," said Entertainment Writer, Joe Belanger.
The Grand Theatre's #HumbugtoHunger campaign, in support of the London Food Bank and the Business Cares program, continues throughout the run. Cash donations are being collected following each performance.
On selected dates, the London Children's Museum will be at the theatre running pre-show activities for children on Sunday, December 17, Saturday, December 23, and Sunday, December 24 (matinees).
Tickets are $29.95 to $88 (includes HST and CIF - prices subject to change). Tickets are available at www.grandtheatre.com, by phone at 519-672-8800, or at the Box Office, 471 Richmond Street.
