A must-see every year, Theatre Calgary’s annual production of A Christmas Carol is always a fantastic way to get into the holiday spirit! Relive Charles Dickens’ classic tale about Ebenezer Scrooge as he is taken on a tour of Christmases past, present, and future! For many of us here in Calgary, this production is the cornerstone of that Christmas sentiment. Come visit and you’ll see why!
Local star actor Stephen Hair reprises his role as the curmudgeonly Scrooge for the 26th year, and all that experience shows! A good Scrooge ages like fine wine, and at this point Stephen is one of the very best in the world! This is a tremendous stage show that you and your whole family will love. With dates from November 28 to the end of December, there are plenty of opportunities to catch this beloved show!
If you didn’t get enough musical entertainment from The Christmas Carol, come to Calgary between December 29 and 31 to watch an inspiring show featuring the music of Queen! We Will Rock You is an original story musical written by British comedian Ben Elton (The Young Ones, Black Adder) set to the songs of Queen. You’ll be introduced to the distant future of iPlanet where individualism is outlawed and young people have been transformed into mindless clones, devoid of energy, creativity, and youthful spirit. In this bleak musical landscape, two revolutionaries named Galileo and Scaramouche rise to save rock and roll and the hope of an entire generation. This breakout smash musical is coming to the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium to remind you what rock and roll is all about!
