United Service Organizations (USO) of Illinois and Goodman Theatre will give 600 free tickets for the closing day performance of A Christmas Carol to Active Duty Military and their families. Before the show, the audience will be treated to a holiday celebration featuring the Shurz High School choir, an enchanted Victorian ‘scrooge’ weaving his magic spell, and festive holiday cheer! This year marks the third anniversary of partnership between Goodman Theatre and the USO of Illinois.
About Goodman Theatre’s 34rd Annual Production of A Christmas Carol
Based on Charles Dickens’ 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol is the tale of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, who is opposed to holiday cheer and indifferent to the sufferings of the poor in Victorian London. Scrooge is visited by four ghosts who offer him the opportunity to sympathize with his fellow man. Dickens’ famous characters include Scrooge’s kind-hearted clerk Bob Cratchit and his son Tiny Tim, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, the merry-making Fezziwig couple and the Ghost of Jacob Marley. Throughout its history at the Goodman, over 1 million people have experienced A Christmas Carol and the production has hosted six directors, seven Scrooges, 27 Tiny Tims and nearly 20,000 “Bah, Humbug!”s.
