About the Show

Charles Dickens is ready to present one of the famed platform readings that packed auditoriums in Europe and North America. And so, he begins his beloved Christmas classic:

“To begin with Marley was dead…
Old Marley was dead as a doornail…
This must be understood or nothing wonderful can come of this story I am about to relate.”

Ebenezer Scrooge is a miserly businessman who cares nothing for Christmas cheer, until one Christmas Eve he is visited by three spirits; the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future who set out to show Ebenezer the error of his ways.

Join Dickens as he takes you on Scrooge’s ghostly journey to redemption.

A Timeless Holiday Classic!

When you come to see the shows, please bring your donations for Feed Scarborough!

From Feed Scarborough

5.8 million Canadians don’t get enough healthy food, including 1.4 million children.
On average Feed Scarborough registers 1,244 new clients each month!
When money is tight, food is the first thing people negotiate with. We can’t control our rent or utilities, but we can choose to eat less or eat less nutritious foods to help save money. Based on reported incomes and expenses, food bank users have a median of $8.01 left per person per day after rent and utilities were paid; for racialized individuals, it was $7.75, and for recent immigrants to Canada within the past year, it was $3.81. Scarborough is made up of 64% immigrants.
Food Banks were meant to be a band-aid solution to an issue in the 80s. Now there are 61,000 non-profit organizations in Canada that provide food to people at low or no cost. These charities outnumber grocery stores 4 to 1.
