Ira David Wood III’s beloved musical comedy, A Christmas Carol, celebrates its 40th Anniversary this year and we want you to be a part of this milestone. The show has been performed annually since 1974 and has been named one of the “Top 20 Events in the Southeast.” Cited as “one of the most successful shows in North Carolina theatre history,” A Christmas Carol has enjoyed critically acclaimed tours to England and France.

With over one million people having experienced the magic of A Christmas Carol throughout the years, the show regularly sells out. A few of its honors include being named one of the Top 20 Events In The Southeast, the Metro Ovation Award, the Triangle Arts & Entertainment Reader’s Choice Award, Proclamations from the Mayor of Raleigh and the Governor of North Carolina, Proclamations from Compiegne, France and Kingston-Upon-Hull, England, and the distinct privilege of being the first theatrical production at DPAC.

As part of the 40th Anniversary Celebration, an extra show has been added to Raleigh. Raleigh dates, at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts Memorial Auditorium are December 10-14, 2014.
Durham dates at the Durham Performing Arts Center are December 18-21, 2014.
