A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon for a ticket to A Christmas Carol at the Actors Theatre. Choose from one of two seating options:
- $15 for one section 3 ticket, located in the back balcony (up to a $33.50 value)
- $25 for one section 2 ticket, located in the back orchestra or the middle balcony (up to a $50.50 value)
After 19 years of staging season's greetings for Phoenix audiences, the Actors Theatre presents its musical version of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens for the final time. The classic holiday tale, given a melodic makeover with songs and lyrics by Alan Ruch, shares the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a money-hungry miser who is visited by a Cream cover band's worth of ghosts one Christmas Eve. Through dimension-bending derring-do and time-warping travel, Scrooge sees the errors of his ways and learns the true meaning of kindness, generosity, and the Christmas spirit. Shudder at the rattle of Marley's chains, quake at the Ghost of Christmas Future’s eerie silence, and ultimately cheer on Tiny Tim when he throws the game-winning touchdown. A Christmas Carol runs from December 4–24, with matinee and evening performances available—check the schedule for showtimes.
