The Three Ships Collective - with the support of Soup Can Theatre - is proud to announce the return of A Christmas Carol; the immersive and award-winning smash hit adaptation of Dickens timeless holiday classic! Set in the historic and picturesque Campbell House Museum, audiences are invited to step into the world of Victorian England and follow flinty miser Ebenezer Scrooge on his ghostly journey of redemption. With an original text by Justin Haigh (Love is a Poverty You Can Sell, Behold the Barfly!), directed by Sarah Thorpe (No Exit, Marat/Sade, Heretic), and enhanced by live musical elements courtesy of Musical Director Pratik Gandhi (Love is a Poverty You Can Sell, Marat/Sade), this production of A Christmas Carol illuminates the familiar tale in a fresh and meaningful way.
First staged in December 2018, A Christmas Carol was an immediate success; selling out the entire run even before the first public performance, and receiving rave reviews from both the press and public alike. The production was recognized at the 2018 My Entertainment World Awards, with lead actor Thomas Gough winning for 'Outstanding Leading Performance in a Play (Independent)', and director Sarah Thorpe nominated for 'Outstanding Direction'.
Bringing this work to life is a stellar cast featuring returning performers Thomas Gough, Jim Armstrong, Chloe Bradt, and Michael Hogan, as well new cast members including Dora Award-winners and perennial audience favourites Heather Marie Annis (Morro and Jasp) and Kat Letwin (Chasse Galerie, Soulpepper/Storefront; Confederation Pts 1 & 2, Soulpepper/VideoCab) as well as Justine Christensen (Cannibal, Next Stage Festival), Marcel Dragonieri (The Misanthrope, Mirvish), Tayves Fiddis (Macbeth, Classical Theatre Project), Diana Franz, Carolyn Hall (Pride and Prejudice, Grand Theatre), Aliya Hamid, Cihang Ma (Carpe Into My DMs, Best of Fringe 2019), Nicholas Koy Santillo (The Crucible, Hart House), and Callum Shoniker (A Christmas Story, LOT).
A mirthful medley of magic, music, and the macabre, A Christmas Carol is a holiday experience unlike any other!
Praise for A Christmas Carol includes:
NNNN NOW Magazine: "Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol is so ubiquitous at this time of year that it's hard to approach it with any sort of freshness. Thankfully the ingenious folks at the Three Ships Collective and Soup Can Theatre have done just that. ... Brilliant ... Imaginative ... Impeccable ... A one-of-a-kind production."
MGT Magazine: "Delightful ... Charming ... I had a tear in my eye ... This production is extravagant in ways that a Scrooge would not approve of."
Slotkin Letter: "One of the best productions on offer ... Uses the gift of setting the story in the Campbell House Museum to its full advantage ... An exemplary and magical production."
SesayArts Magazine: It is a most unusual experience and it is excellent. Directed with an assured vision by Sarah Thorpe, who elicits a uniformly strong ensemble performance from her outstanding cast. A unique and truly wonderful production.
