Guthrie Theater

The Need

The Guthrie Theater is dedicated to producing the great works of dramatic literature, developing the work of contemporary playwrights and cultivating the next generation of theater artists. The Guthrie produces a mix of classic and contemporary plays on three stages and works to set a national standard for excellence in theatrical production and performance.

The Impact

The perennial favorite “A Christmas Carol,” written by Charles Dickens, received a new adaptation by Crispin Whittell in 2010 and continues its long-standing run at the Guthrie for the 43rd year.

The show runs November 14 – December 30 on the Wurtele Thrust Stage. For tickets or more information, visit the Guthrie Theater website.

“‘A Christmas Carol’ marks a special time of year for our staff, for families throughout the region and for first-time theatergoers experiencing Dickens’ classic on our stage,” remarks Joseph Haj, Guthrie artistic director. “It warms our hearts to see the impact this tradition has had on our community for more than four decades, and we look forward to rediscovering this familiar story for another season.”
