Ebenezer Scrooge is a miserable old miser. But when three ghosts decide to swoop in overnight, he gets the wake-up call of a lifetime. This charming Christmas classic by Charles Dickens has one of life’s most inspiring questions at its heart: what — and who — will really matter in the end? See it brought to life in the historic Royal George Theatre by the Shaw Festival’s world-class Ensemble. Plus, enjoy a Victorian winter wonderland in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Fun for everyone (even Scrooge).
