(Opening night: Tuesday, November 21, 2023)
Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre
Conrad Prebys Theatre Center
By Gordon Greenberg and Steve Rosen
Based on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
It’s back! San Diego has another show in its Christmas stocking with this fast, funny, and highly theatrical reimagining of one of the most beloved holiday stories ever told. All the traditional elements of Dickens’s A Christmas Carol are intact—including the iconic ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future—but with a comic local twist. Audiences of all ages will cheer Ebenezer Scrooge’s rediscovery of the Christmas spirit in this riotous Dickens mash-up filled with music and laughter—all set in “wintery” San Diego.
Subscriber and donor priority pre-sale for Ebenezer Scrooge’s BIG San Diego Christmas Show starts September 12, and single tickets for the general public will be available online September 20; and on September 22 by phone at (619) 23-GLOBE (234-5623) and in person at The Old Globe’s Box Office in Balboa Park.
Running time: One hour and 15 minutes. There is no intermission.
For Ebeneezer Scrooge's BIG San Diego Christmas Show children under the age of five are not permitted. Each individual attending the show must have a ticket for admission.
Ebenezer Scrooge’s BIG San Diego Christmas Show is supported by Production Sponsor Elizabeth Cushman.
