'A Christmas Carol' returns to Denver this holiday season

Colorado's largest production of 'A Christmas Carol' returns this holiday season at the Denver Performing Arts Complex.

DENVER — A Colorado tradition returns to the Denver Performing Arts Complex this holiday season.

The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) Theatre Company will stage "A Christmas Carol" from Friday, Nov. 17, through Sunday, Dec. 24, at the Wolf Theatre.

Based on Charles Dickens' classic novel, the Denver musical adaptation traces curmudgeon Ebenezer Scrooge's triumphant overnight journey to redemption.

A longtime part of the holiday season in Denver, "A Christmas Carol" returned in 2021 after a three-year absence. The production was paused in 2019 for theater renovations and was canceled due to the pandemic in 2020.

“Nothing says the holiday season at the DCPA quite like 'A Christmas Carol,'” said artistic director Chris Coleman. “'A Christmas Carol' brings a warmth to the season that gets you into the spirit to celebrate and be with loved ones. I look forward to ending the year with this cozy production.”

Tickets are on sale now at denvercenter.org starting at $35.
