Event Notes


Celebrate the season with Theatre Collingwood and a staged reading of Dickens' most memorable story!

In 1843 Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol after visiting the northern industrial town of Manchester, England. He made a speech there about the necessity of educating very poor children. Dickens wrote the book because he needed money, but he chose the theme as a response to the notorious poverty of the "hungry forties". A week after publication A Christmas Carol had sold an astounding 6000 copies.

Covid-19 has put great restrictions on the theatre world, making it not possible for us to bring to you live performances in person. Therefore, Theatre Collingwood is venturing into the world of streamed performances and invites you to attend from the safety and comfort of your own home!

HOW IT WORKS: You will purchase a "ticket" for the low price of $25 plus HST, which will entitle you to a link to the performance. The link will be sent to you on the day before the show and our staff will be available to help you with any questions you may have. You will simply click on the private link and enjoy the show! Your link will be active as of 7:00 PM EST on December 18th and valid for 48 hours.

The wonderful thing about this concept is that it holds no geographical barriers, so please tell your friends and family, wherever they live in the world, that they may also buy the link. Or you may want to purchase it as a gift for someone. THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT!

Theatre Collingwood: Bringing great performances to our community for 36 years. And now from the comfort of your living room!
