The stage of the Mimi Ohio Theatre will glow with good spirits and time-honored tradition when Great Lakes Theater (GLT) presents its 30th-anniversary production of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol, running November 30 – December 23, 2018. The production has delighted more than 750,000 people in its history, making it one of northeast Ohio’s most-loved and best-attended holiday events.
Gerald Freedman’s adaptation of A Christmas Carol is presented as a story within a story. The fictitious Cleaveland family gathers in its Victorian-era parlor on Christmas Eve to read Mr. Dickens’ book. As Mrs. Cleaveland reads the story to her family, her youngest child, Master William, re-imagines familiar faces as characters in the story: the Cleaveland’s crotchety manservant becomes Scrooge; Father becomes Bob Cratchit; Mother becomes Belle, and the Cleaveland children become the Cratchits, with Master William becoming the beloved Tiny Tim. In all, more than 60 Dickens characters are brought to life on stage.
All seats are reserved and priced at $75 or $35. *Student tickets $26 for current attendees with Valid ID!*
