A Christmas Carol

Performance Dates

The annual Ford’s Theatre production of A Christmas Carol has been a Washington tradition for more than 30 years. Join the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future as they lead the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge on a journey of transformation and redemption. Originally conceived by Michael Baron, this music-infused production captures the magic and joy of Dickens’s Yuletide classic. Celebrated Washington stage actor Edward Gero returns to play Scrooge in the production The Washington Posthailed as “musically high-spirited” and “infectiously jolly.”
