Seasonal traditions make the holiday more hotly anticipated than a summer blockbuster in which transforming robots run for Congress. Arrange a new annual outing with today’s Groupon: $20 tickets to the A Christmas Carol at Alley Theatre, a $38 value.
Round up your relatives and catch the Alley’s live version of this heartwarming and bone-chilling Charles Dickens classic. More than 30 actors bring the story to life in Alley Theatre's “A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story of Christmas,” which presents the timely tale of Ebenezer Scrooge. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge encounters the ghost of his late business partner Jacob Marley, after which he voyages through time to meet the three spirits—Christmas Past, Present, and Future. A Christmas Carol is perhaps the archetypal redemption story, for after he sees the terrible fate he's earned, Scrooge expunges himself of his sinful greed. The story is so touching that after some performances, audience members have mimicked Scrooge's self-absolution by going straight home and donating their vaults of golden coins to charity.
Winners of the Regional Theatre Tony Award in 1996, the Alley Theatre has been bringing inspirational theatrical performances to Houstonians since its opening in 1947. With concrete towers and terraces, the Alley appears as a rugged, modern, concrete castle from the exterior. Walking inside, you'll pass the spiral staircase and into the modern and spacious Hubbard Stage auditorium that make for an elegant theatre experience. You’ll catch the performance from seats in the B-off center and B-side sections of the Hubbard Stage.
Leave holiday drama to the professionals this year and purchase this Groupon for your entire extended family and Michael Rapaport. Kick off your holiday season with an amazing journey through time that will awaken your Christmas spirit.
