Immersive A CHRISTMAS CAROL To Return to Toronto's Historic Campbell House Museum

Immersive A CHRISTMAS CAROL To Return to Toronto's Historic Campbell House Museum

This unique theatrical experience invites audience members to step into the world of Victorian England and follow flinty miser Ebenezer Scrooge on his ghostly journey.

The Three Ships Collective - with the support of Soup Can Theatre - has announced the return of A Christmas Carol! After a two-year hiatus, the immersive and award-winning production will once again transform the historic and picturesque Campbell House Museum, filling it with mirth, music, and merriment!

This unique theatrical experience invites audience members to step into the world of Victorian England and follow flinty miser Ebenezer Scrooge on his ghostly journey of redemption. Written by Justin Haigh (Love is a Poverty You Can Sell, Behold the Barfly!), directed by Sare Thorpe (No Exit, Marat/Sade, Heretic), and brought to life by a stellar cast (including audience favourite Thomas Gough in his critically-acclaimed role as Scrooge), this adaptation of Charles Dickens' story features original scenes, characters, songs, and dialogue, making it a retelling of the beloved holiday tale unlike any other.
After back-to-back sold out runs in 2018 and 2019 and receiving rave reviews from both the press and public alike, A Christmas Carol is one of Toronto's newest holiday traditions and one the season's most anticipated events!

Covid and Masking Policies:


Due to the historic nature of the Campbell House Museum and the unique staging of this production, audience members will often be standing in close proximity to each other and to the actors, and doing so in rooms of varying sizes. For the health and safety of both our audiences and our cast, all attendees of A Christmas Carol will be required to wear a mask while inside the Campbell House.


Performances on Sunday December 11th at 5:30pm and Sunday December 18th at 5:30pm are designated as "Covid-Cautious" performances. In addition to our universal masking policy these two performances will differ as follows:


1. Audience capacity will be moderately reduced, although audience members should still expect to stand in close proximity to one another.
2. All audience members, regardless of age, will be required to have had at least two doses of a federally approved Covid vaccine. Proof of vaccination will be checked at the entrance.
