Sensory-Friendly/Relaxed Performance of A Christmas Carol

at Goodman Theatre, Chicago

Adapted by Tom Creamer
Directed by Jessica Thebus

Experience the “perfect Chicago holiday tradition” (Chicago Parent) that has delighted nearly two million theatergoers—Goodman Theatre’s A Christmas Carol. With its “first-rate cast and marvelous staging (that) shines merry and bright” (Chicago Sun-Times), this must-see annual production has enchanted audiences for more than four decades. Larry Yando returns for his 15th season as the miserly Scrooge in this “beautiful, timeless message of generosity’s triumph over greed’ (Chicago Tribune).

A Christmas Carol is appropriate for ages 6 and up. The production contains loud noises, bright lights, and images that may frighten very young children. Children under 5 are not permitted in the theater. For more information contact the box office at 312.443.3800
