44 years young!

First staged in 1974, this version of Charles Dickens' classic is an absolute must see if you live in the Durham area. Cited as "one of the most successful shows in North Carolina theater history", the show turns the tale of Scrooge into a joyous musical comedy, packed full of spirit and show-stopping tunes, while still preserving the poignant heart of the original. It's a real local success story, and has enjoyed hugely acclaimed tours in both England and France.

As everyone knows, A Christmas Carol tells the story of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, who is visited on Christmas Eve by three ghosts, who teach him the error of his ways. Ira will be taking on the role of Scrooge as usual, apart from all Saturday matinees, when his son Ira David Wood IV will play the part.
